love…

I
don’t
know
how
to
start
over
I
don’t
recognize
love
can’t
feel
it
I
think
he
took
that
with
him
when
he
died
or
rather
I
gave
it
to
him
and
I
don’t
actually
miss
it
because
it
was
his
from
the
start
but
it
is
strange
being
empty
all
the
time

  1. Beautiful words dear Gigi! ❤

  2. I have never experienced losing a great love to death or by choice. It would seem that your grief walks with you carrying its lonliness. You bear it well exuding creativity and love absent of bitterness that can easily accompany. I am grateful for your love and caring.❤️

    • I hope you never do have that experience. But there’s nothing to be done…death is part of life. The dead, hopefully, are fine, it’s those who are left who end up dealing with the empty space the dead leave behind. I think we need to look at death in a different way. Death is a wonderful thing. It ends terrible suffering and it’s the only way out of here. I feel that death is neutral, just as life is. Being born is the entrance to this game and dying is the exit. Can’t be angry with either one. I’m happy the exit was there for both my son and my husband, so they didn’t have to linger, or suffer any longer I’m grateful to death for helping them, when no one else could. I’ve seen death help so many people. Take them from lives there were no longer meaningful or wanted. A lot of people fear death, for any number of reasons, but really, life would be horrific without it. I don’t believe anyone dies before they are supposed to. Not ever. So, when death steps in, the person is either finished with what s/he came her to do, or it’s just time to turn in their monopoly money and stop playing the game. It’s a terrible experience, but it would be worse to see the people you love suffer. I would choose death over suffering every time. I’ve had to do that…choose…for others, who could not choose for themselves. It was an easy choice…because love gives a person the strength to do what’s best for the other person, no matter how badly you want them to stay. You have to let them go and be grateful that you can do that for them when they can’t help themselves. Letting people die is an act of love. ❤

      • you are amazing gigi. i am crying by reading your words. i guess it’s part of your pain that i can feel through it. i wish you all the best. i do not have the impression, that there is emptiness in you/your heart, the opposite is the case. you are love. thank you. ❤

      • I don’t know how to thank you for your incredibly kind words. I’m so very grateful. ❤

  3. Death is final. You are a perfect example of living your life to the fullest. Giving your gift to the world.

  4. You are most welcome. Happy New Year
