Don't Let Go

I don't know how to say it. I don't know how to let go. How to say goodbye.

***

“So long, partner.” 
“You met me at a very stage time in my life.” 
“I’m not even gonna swat that fly. I hope they are watching. They'll see and they'll know and they'll say, ‘Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly.’...” 
“Still, things won't ever be the way they were before he came. But that’s alright because if you hang onto the past you die a little every day. And for myself, I know I'd rather live.” 
“And no matter what they did to build this city back up again, for the rest of time, it would be like no one even knew we were ever here.” 
“This place makes me wonder. Which would be worse, to live as a monster, or to die a good man?” 
“I believe in friends. I believe we need them, but if one day you find you just can't trust them anymore, then, what then? What then?” 
“You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry: you will someday.” 
“I'll be right here.”

All the last lines from all the movies won't do. 

It's alright. You can let go now.

I won't forget you
