Quotes- Loss of the Loved One
“Those we love don’t go away,they walk beside us every day. Unseen, Unheard, but Always near, Still Loved, Still Missed and very dear”- Author Unknown Quotes- Loss of the Loved One
“When someone you love dies, and you’re not expecting it, you don’t lose her all at once; you lose her in pieces over a long time — the way the mail stops coming, and her scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in her closet and drawers. Gradually, you accumulate the parts of her that are gone. Just when the day comes — when there’s a particular missing part that overwhelms you with the feeling that she’s gone, forever — there comes another day, and another specifically missing part.”–John Irving,A Prayer for Owen Meany
Grief is the price we pay for love. –Queen Elizabeth II
You will lose someone you can’t live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly – that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.–Anne Lamott
There are no happy endings.
Endings are the saddest part,
So just give me a happy middle
And a very happy start. Shel Silverstein
Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.— Edna St. Vincent Millay
May tender memories soften your grief, May fond recollection bring you relief, And may you find comfort and peace in the thought Of the joy that knowing your loved one brought… For time and space can never divide Or keep your loved one from your side. When memory paints in colors true, the happy hours that belonged to you.-Helen Steiner Rice
Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.–Vicki Harrison
It is 4 am.
Your perfume is on
Everything, on me
On all the world – you
Are all around, you
Are all of my tattered
Senses and no poetry,
No song, no writing,
Nothing in the world
Will make this better.-–David Jones,Could You Ever Live Without?
Sometimes, only one person is missing, and the whole world seems depopulated. –Alphonse de Lamartine,Méditations Poétiques
What moves through us is a silence… a quiet sadness… A longing for one more day… one more word… one more touch.
We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. We will see you again someday, in a heavenly place where there is no parting. A place where there are no words that mean good-bye.-An Old Irish Prayer
