'cause this life is a beautiful one

"The greatest weakness of most humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they’re alive."

When someone you love dies, the world as you know it ends. Literally, it does. And it’ll never be the same again. And you have to rebuild the world, and that’s the hardest part. You have to pick up what’s left, strap it down with you, and hope like hell that whatever is left will stick around for a long time.

The world as I knew it is over…again. And now I need to somehow get a new one together when there was plain perfection in my last world, and that’s not fair and that’s what sucks. So right now, I’m just looking for what’s left. And I will find it. And I will love it and cherish it. But…I wasn’t ready for my old one to end yet.
