The only way I can feel this sad now, is if I felt something really good before. So I have to take the bad with the good.

It's funny because everything makes me think of you. I read a poem, and I wonder what you'd say about it.
I see people, and I wonder you'd know about them.
Everywhere I go, I run into something, that remindes me of you all over again.
There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.Love, DeathThornton Wilder in The Bridge of San Luis Rey
They say the first year after a major loss is the hardest. That’s an understatement; loss is its own brand of insanity and no relief from it. There are no shortcuts and the only way through grief is through it. You just have to get up every day and wait to go to bed every night, then wake up and do it all over again.Breakup & Lovesick, LossKa Hancock in Dancing on Broken Glass
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep,
I am a thousands winds that blow,
I am the diamond glint on snow,
I am the sunnlight in ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I do not die.
Oh, you can hear me cry, see my dreams all die
From where you're standing on your own
It's so quiet here, and I feel so cold
This house no longer feels like home
There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.Life, Love, DeathThornton Wilder
A thousand deaths, and you recover from each. Not so the mind, the mind is much more fragile. Its scars run deep and do not heal. The brain is encased in a hard bone shell, difficult to breach, but with no defense against that which eats at it from within.Mind & Apprehension, Breakup & Lovesick, ThoughtsPlanescape Torment, by Ravel
Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.WorriesHenry Wadsworth Longfellow
'til I see you smile
just for me
'til I hear you breathe
calm and free
and until you sleep
I won't let you grieve
You are going to lose people in your life.
And I realize that no matter how much you spent with them,
or how much you appreciated them and told them so,
it will never seem like it was enough.
How will I find this heart of mine?
Taken from me for some time
Here I stand in my pool of tears
Here I'll stay throughout the years
Its so hard to forget someone, who gave you so much to remember.Memories, Breakup & Lovesick, ForgettingUnknown
I love life. Yeah, I'm sad, but at the same time, I'm really happy that something could make me feel that sad. It's like... it makes me feel alive, you know. It makes me feel human. The only way I could feel this sad now is if I felt something really good before. So I have to take the bad with the good. So I guess what I'm feeling is like a beautiful sadness.Life, Breakup & Lovesick in South Park, Season 7 Episode 14

We're meant to lose the people we love. How else would we know how important they are to us?DeathThe Curious Case of Benjamin Button, by Mrs. Maple
If I knew that today would be the last time I'd see you, I would hug you tight and pray the Lord be the keeper of your soul.
If I knew that this would be the last time you pass through this door, I'd embrace you, kiss you, and call you back for one more.
If I knew that this would be the last time I would hear your voice, I'd take hold of each word to be able to hear it over and over again.
If I knew this is the last time I see you, I'd tell you I love you, and would not just assume foolishly you know it already.
Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed that is. Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.DeathMaster Yoda in Star Wars, Episode III - Die Rache der Sith
When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it's not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.Dreaming, Breakup & LovesickStephenie Meyer in Twilight - 2
Weeping willow with your tears running down, why do you always weep and frown? Is it because he left you one day? is it because he could not stay? On your branches he would swing, do you long for the happiness that day would bring? He found shelter in your shade. You thought his laughter would never fade. Weeping willow, stop your tears. There is something to calm you fears. You think death has ripped you forever apart. But I know he'll always be in your heart.Desire, DeathMy Girl, by Vada
