My Angel, my great Love… To imagine my life without you is tearing me apart… the horror of what you have been through is tearing me apart… Carrying on knowing that we will never touch again, we will never speak again, we will never wake up more in each other’s arms it tears me apart… Not making the energy bars you liked so much it’s destroying me… Our beautiful plans as a couple, which were finally taking shape now that your demanding career was over, and which They’ll never come true, it’s tearing me apart…
“Not being able to see and touch you one last time because you’re gone so horribly, it’s tearing me apart… knocking me down… I’m trying to catch my breath, but how can I breathe without you by my side? I beg you, wrap me in your light, so beautiful, so sweet, so kind, so loving, so sunny… give me the strength to get up, and above all RIP IN PEACE, this peace you deserve so much. I will always keep you in my heart and in all of my being, for eternity.“
