But what if we are not there? How do they look like? How do they feel? Do they miss us? Do they know that we, humans, are so mortal, so fragile? That someday we're gone. This time temporarily maybe. Another time could be forever. So are they, someday. They're just some places in this world. Do we forget them in new places? Or do they still occupy someplace in our hearts and minds?
"One day by chance, left on my road is your footprint... The road is still waiting. But it's never seen someone's feet again."
(Hoa Tim Ngoai San - a Vietnamese song)
