May the blessings of love be upon you
May its peace abide with you
May its essence illuminate your heart
Now and forever more...
~Sufi Blessing of Love and Peace
He spoke well who said that graves are the footprints of angels.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same.
~ Author Unknown
As you comprehend this profound loss, let yourself cry knowing each tear is a note of love rising to the heavens.
What we have once enjoyed we can never lose... All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.
Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.
When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
Life is eternal and love is immortal; And death is only a horizon, And a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
When you lose someone you love, you gain an angel you know.
Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower, We will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind.
There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.
Like a bird singing in the rain, let grateful memories survive in time of sorrow.
~Robert Louis Stevenson
When the heart grieves over what is has lost, the spirit rejoices over what it has left.
Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality.
To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.
Let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life.
