  1. such bitter-sweet memories cling to us and i think we’re glad they do, for what would we have without them? sadness is immesurable, as is pain, but in keeping the memories, we are keeping our loved ones close by.

    my heart goes out to you.

    “your entire life
    reduced down to small flashes”

    beautiful poem, each word a symbol of your love.

    • “The word ‘happiness’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.” Carl Jung

      There is no replacing someone that we lose, but it’s a beautiful thing to be able to keep them alive in memory, to reflect and cherish each moment we did have. And when you experience this kind of loss, even though the pain never stops, it helps you to see the beauty in things that other people forget about and often overlook, and reminds you to never take life, loves, family, friends for granted.

      Thank you deeply.
