About grief, tears and sorrow


Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,

love leaves a memory no one can steal.

/From a headstone in Ireland


Grieving is a necessary passage and a difficult transition

to finally letting go of sorrow

– it is not a permanent rest stop.



Tears shed for another person are not a sign of weakness.

They are a sign of a pure heart.

/José N. Harris



No one ever really dies as long as they took the time

to leave us with fond memories.

/Chris Sorensen


A life without sorrow is like a painting without shadows.



Tears are words from the heart

that can’t be spoken.




When it rains

look for rainbows,

when it´s dark

look for stars.


Stars are openings in Heaven

where our loved ones shine down.



Crying doesn’t indicate that you are weak.

Since birth, it has always been a sign that you are alive.




Storms make trees take deeper roots.

/Dolly Parton


A storm may come

but as it came

it shall pass



Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love,

the things you are, the things you never want to lose.

/Kevin Arnold



The sorrow which has no vent in tears

may make other organs weep.

/Henry Maudsley


Recovery begins from the darkest moment.

/John Major


Without you in my arms, I feel an emptiness in my soul.

I find myself searching the crowds for your face

– I know it’s an impossibility, but I cannot help myself.

/Nicholas Sparks



It’s so curious: one can resist tears and ‘behave’ very well in the hardest hours of grief.

But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window,

or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed,

or a letter slips from a drawer… and everything collapses.



Tears are the silent language of grief.




Grief is a normal and natural response to loss. It is originally an unlearned feeling process.

Keeping grief inside increases your pain.

/Anne Grant


When one person is missing the whole world seems empty.

/Pat Schweibert


Spansk jungfru

What soap is for the body, tears are for the soul.

/Jewish Proverb


There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept,

things we don’t want to know but have to learn,

and people we can’t live without but have to let go.

/Author Unknown



If I can see pain in your eyes then share with me your tears.

If I can see joy in your eyes then share with me your smile.

/Santosh Kalwar


Grief changes shape, but it never ends.

/Keanu Reeves



Take care 💕
