I only feel this way about my parents.but I'm sure the quote is about a broken heart. I'm pretty sure losing them is the only time I have had a broken heart. nothing else in my life has ever made me relate to quotes such as this
It has been 2 years today since I lost a piece of my heart. Although it has been that long, it still feels like yesterday and I miss you even more and it's still not the same without you. I love you and miss you so much. In memory of my Dad
You never expect anyone to pass away and truthfully you really can't live your life where you spend every moment you are with someone as if they could die tomorrow. You're a human being and that's just not realistic. It makes for a great thought though.
