Robert Pattinson: “If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are. Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads"

Say hello, say goodbye
Time really does fly by.
I’ll miss the times I spent with you,
And all the memories I’m going through.

I’ll remember your pretty smile,
And hear your laugh in my mind.
I’ll miss everything you do,
And all the memories I’m going through.

In my mind, you are here,
Strong and healthy, my dear.
I’ll miss you so,
And I’ll never let go.

The sky turns grey,
To match my mood.
It was once blue,
Shining like you always do.

But when your gone,
All the colors will drain,
And no one can leave
With a smile on their face.

Say hello, say goodbye.
Time really does fly by,
You were young and so was I.
The day you were destined to die.
