You are a butterfly.
It's not always easy to let someone go. Especially not when you have known fun times with the person. Especially not if you love the person and would prefer to have the person close to you forever.
We humans are set in this way: the moment we find something beautiful or nice, we want to own it.
Why else would we take those beautiful flowers from the tree to keep them in a vase in the house?
Why would we want to confine those birds that should be so free and happy in nature to a bird cage?
Why do we want to buy on the spot those clothes that we like so much in the store, even though we don't always need it?
Because we want to own what we think is beautiful or nice.
And we sometimes want to do the same with people. We want to own the people we love, keep them in our lives and hold them hard so they don't leave us alone and go away.
But when you do that, do you really love the person?
An ex-employer of mine once said, 'We humans are like caterpillars. We nestle in a safe, warm, comfortable environment where we can emerge as butterflies. And once we are butterflies, we stretch our wings and flutter away. Away, to a different environment. And isn't that always wonderful to see?'
So are the people in your life. If someone is in your life right now, he/she is there to emerge into that butterfly. If that butterfly wants to flutter away, let it flutter away. Don't break his/her wings so you have the beautiful colors just for yourself.
If the butterfly misses its old, safe environment it will return one day.
In the meantime: spread your wings yourself and look for other beautiful surroundings. The world is big and beautiful and there is enough space for every butterfly.
