Nobody gets through life without losing someone they love, someone they need, or something they thought was meant to be. People don’t live forever. Appreciate what you have, who loves you and who cares for you. You’ll never know how much they mean to you until the day they are no longer beside you. And remember, just because something doesn’t last forever, doesn’t mean it wasn’t worth your while.

....it never hurts less to lose someone so special. It's more difficult losing someone as an adult. I have to continue on as if everything is ok. When really all I want, is permission to fall apart for just a moment.
When I really finally realised we would not be spending forever together, all the pain of the past few years erupted out of me. A waterfall of pain that I at times was sure would not cease. There have been eruptions since but they are merely reminders of the fear I felt at losing someone I had loved so much. RH
