Of Love & Loss

For dear Amanda @ Oliveaux

We do not have to rely
upon memories
to recapture the spirit
of those we have loved and lost -
they live within our souls
in some perfect sanctuary
which even death
cannot destroy -

From The Thoughts of Nanushka Vol VII-XII - Nan Witcomb


  1. That is a beautiful quotation and so thoughtful of you to post it Millie....xv

  2. Beautiful post and word Millie.. I will be keeping Amanda in my thoughts... xx Julie

  3. Absolulely beautiful Millie....

    I loved the Italy holiday location, I'd be there in a heartbeat :)

    And finally, happy belated anniversary to you and MOTH, you look beautiful Millie....lucky old MOTH :) xo

  4. I have already sent Amanda my love and sympathy , but these words are beautiful, Mill's. XXXX

  5. Millie,
    For anyone who has lost someone, myself included, these words are golden. How very thoughtful of you to post them. I know I will carry them with my today and keep Amanda in my heart.

  6. So very touching and you are a true friend to Amanda. My heart goes out to her and her entire family. It's a deep loss and it hurts. xx

  7. Inspiring post all of us who have suffered a loss. These are touching words to keep close to heart. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I will save the beautiful words to share with others when I am of need. The quotation is so very touching and it is sometimes hard to express my thoughts well. It puts to words what I am sometimes feeling.

  9. Well said Millie..A friend gave me The Thoughts Of Nanushka when I was going through dark days and it really is an extraordinary collection of poems. Rachaelxx


And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart.
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?
