F amily always comes first A ll together we reach the stars M oments to be cherished and shared I incandescent faith and hope L et go of your fears and be happy Y ielding ties and connecting every day.
I have just bought the flight for Summer vacation. Me and the children will be staying in Portugal three whole weeks. Just because family comes first. Lisboa, Tomar, Faro, Tavira. I am sure we will share tears and good laughter. Two special birthdays will be celebrated; my brother and nephew have the same name (Diogo) and were both born in July.
I’m listening to George Ezra and I just feel like crying, laughing and dancing in the middle at the kitchen. I am happy and sad at the same time. Mãe won’t be there and we will miss her…so much! Saudades will never go away. Nevertheless, avó is always in our hearts.
Usually, I only have two weeks during Summer, but this year there will be three in a row! We only live once and time flies, so let’s enjoy every second. I’ll be counting down the days until the 4th of July. Meanwhile… carpe diem!
This song is for you, my reason of beaming This colourful painting is for you, my reason of living This poem is for you, my reason of being This letter is for you, my reason of smiling This landscape is for you, my reason of believing This mystic fog is for you, my reason of doubting This home is for you, my reason of trusting This love is for you, my reason of moving Forward…always.
I knew the bad news was lurking, but I decided to go straight ahead I avoided the sharp corners Firmly Without any notice, the pebble turned into a boulder And I can no longer kick it and move on Sooner or later I have to face reality I have my fingers crossed Always Until then, let’s party!
What if we only have two minutes left? What if the stars fall from the sky? What if our friends are no longer here? What if the sea drowns all the fishes? What if there is no future anymore? What if Earth swallows us all? What if our family leaves us behind? What if the sun doesn’t rise? We must not waste time Let’s go!
45 years of ups and downs The Earth keeps turning around Friends and family are my rock And they know what I’m made of I’m grateful for all I have Moving forward step by step Joyful days, blissful nights I keep chasing my own lights Every detail is a poem In a perfect tandem Sometimes things don’t work out That’s what life is all about Meanwhile, l shall have fun Because yesterday is already gone Happy birthday to me Living wild and free!
Death is the wish of some, the relief of many, and the end of all.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins.
Edgar Allan Poe
No one here gets out alive.
Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to forget life, to be at peace.
Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality.
By becoming deeply aware of our mortality, we intensify our experience of every aspect of life.
I discovered to my joy, that it is life, not death, that has no limits.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.
