Love is Watching Someone Die.

Love is watching someone die.
Who's gonna watch you die?

I thought the picture went along with those lyrics. Both are beautiful, yet haunting to me. Something you don't want to think about too often. Occasionally, I am griped with fear that someone close to me will die. This of course, is true.

But doesn't this just make you want to cry? We don't like to think of our lives or the lives of the ones we care for most with an expiration date. We want to be with each other forever and the thought of being separated at any given date is scary. But also, this can be a good thing. This fear can really allow you to live if you let it. Instead of feeling crippled by it, let this knowledge help you embrace life.

Spend more time with the ones you love instead of letting work or excuses get in the way. Do things you want to because you may never get another chance. Live every day like it is your last. That fear of dying just may cause you to live.


  1. I love that song! Those lyrics are SO intense :D

  2. I know - Death Cab gets a little crazy, but I love 'em. :)

  3. Great post! This is a wonderful reminder not to take the people we love for granted:)
