"To make the journey and not fall deeply in love... Well, you haven't lived a life at all." - Meet Joe Black

Definitely to have loved and lost. For me, if I've never loved, I guess I would always have this feeling of a great regret, regret that I haven't found my soulmate and I haven't experienced what true love is. I think the things we regret the most in life are things we haven't tried, but they were all depended on us.

If I've never loved, I guess I would also feel very lonely. If I lost my beloved one, I could at least use my memories and imagination to go back to the moments we shared together, making the feeling of loneliness lessened. I know it's irrational, but I could also imagine one day we'll meet again.

I would definitely rather miss her than my lost chances to fall in love.

well I never fell in love even after going out with girl, i tried my best to analyze my feeling and I still can't find anyone I love aside from my family (family's love is different from love from what I think) and well I think its better to have loved 'cause you feel awkward and out of society if you can't love(even if you don't love it dosn't mean you can't like so i still have friend and for me the feeling the closest to love is a great frienship) also when you don't know what love is you can't trust loveand for me who use my imagination for nearly everything I feel like something is missing so a short happiness is better than no happiness

The poem (and this post) is not about falling in love though. It's about caring for someone you knew, to let them shape your life (as you shape theirs) by experiencing it together or to miss out on the chance to know this person, let alone care about them. To forget someone is to forget how this person has influenced your life (for the better or worse).
