Still here

Don’t put flowers on my grave
Leave them in the garden instead

Forget your sorrow and pain
Shall we just dance again?

Don’t buy a fancy apartment
Live in a small house by the sea

Forget me once I’m gone
But stay with me until the end!

The dark side

Reprise

Don’t show me your bright face
I’ve seen it already
Don’t share only your dreams
I’d rather prefer if you confess your griefs
Don’t pretend what you are not
With me, you can be honest
Don’t hide your fears
Together we will face them
Don’t cry in silence
You are beautiful even when you are sad
Don’t be afraid
I’ll never judge you
Don’t push me away
I’m here to stay
Don’t reject love
Because ours will never die.

Stairway to Heaven

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.

Jim Morrison

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.

Oscar Wilde

Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality.

William Shakespeare

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.

Ernest Hemingway

Immortality

Death will never tear us apart
You belong to that special category
You are everywhere
Your voice is in my mind
Always
Your wise advice are dancing in my brain
Faultless
Your sweet hug keeps me company
All the time
Memories will be my best friend
No matter what
Your body is weak and shrunken
It’s OK
On day, the pain will slide away
Forever
But our love will remain
For Eternity
Why would you need a cracked body
If you already have the most important?
A beautiful and clear soul
And remember, yours is immortal.

Golden dreams

My life was made of rags
Random broken pieces
Like a ruined mill
That arouses no interest
Sadness filled my empty days
Whilst my nights were endless
And then, you came around
To release my golden dreams
And whisper velvet words
Grief brought us together
Yet, it is love that keeps us alive.
