Grace informs Henry that she is taking a year off to heal herself. While leaving Grace slips something in his pocket. Heartbroken by their break up Henry had salvaged the poem and left it at Dom’s grave. Grace found it and glued it back together. As a nod to their relationship, Grace leaves it in Henry’s pocket, signifying that broken as they might be in that moment, they can always be put back together in time. 

She also conveys to him that just because their story didn’t have a happy ending doesn’t mean that it wasn’t a story about love. Just because they did not end up together doesn’t mean they didn’t mean anything to each other. Both the teenagers touched each other’s lives, and will always be a part of each other.
