For as long as this place remains

You see,
I believe that when we leave a place,
part of it goes with us
and part of us remains.

Go anywhere in the station,
when it is quiet,
and just listen.

After a while,
you will hear the echoes
of all our conversations.

Every thought
and word
we've exchanged.

Long after we're gone,
our voices
will linger in these walls
for as long as this place remains.

But I will admit
that the part of me that is going
will very much miss
the part of you that is staying.
