The bloom may be brief but the memory of its beauty will last a lifetime. ~Doe Zantamata
Some lives which grace the Earth with their beauty only are here to stay for a very short time. It's sad, because we want them to be here as long as we are, and we miss them from the moment they've passed until the moment we do. No matter how brief, carry the memory of the joy they brought to you. If it had been you who passed, you would not want them to mourn your loss the rest of their days. They don't want that for you, either.
