‘Tis a fearful thing
to love what death can touch.

A fearful thing
to love, to hope, to dream, to be –

to be,
And oh, to lose.

A thing for fools, this,

And a holy thing,

a holy thing
to love.

For your life has lived in me,
your laugh once lifted me,
your word was gift to me.

To remember this brings painful joy.

‘Tis a human thing, love,
a holy thing, to love
what death has touched.”

― Yehuda HaLevi

What a beautiful and heartfelt sentiment.  It touches on our human frailties as we remember what we have lost. Thank you so much for sharing.

I'm glad you like it.  I discovered it shortly before I let Korra go.  It's brought me some peace (and some tears) and assured me that what I am feeling is right, and good.

Dear Korrasday

"What I am feeling is right and good". I thank you for posting this. I assured me that, too.
I cried reading it. I haven't had much appetite or sleep but for the first time I felt that it is O.K I feel this way.
Thank you.
