Which shouldn't exist....

Which shouldn’t exist in this world,
the one who forgets or the one who is forgotten?

Which is better, to love one who has died 
or not to see each other when you are alive? 

Which is better, the distant lover you long for 
or the one you see daily without desire? 

Which is the least unreliable among fickle things - 
the swift rapids, a flowing river, or this human world?”
