Remembering is more than memory

Remembering is more than memory
Feelings that return as real as before
Loving that never ends

Remembering is more than memory
Feelings that bring tears as well as joy
Sorrow is just preparing smiles to take root

Remembering is more than memory
Feelings that real never go away
Loving is as natural as can be

Remembering is more than memory
Feelings that bring smiles also bring tears
Sorrow waters the soil so flowers will bloom

Remembering is more than memory
Feelings that strong cannot be hiddened nor ignored
Loving is to honor in words and in deed,
   ... as well as to never forget

Remembering is more than memory
   ... is loving you like this, always.

At first the dictum in german words and than I wil try it in english. If someone find a better words, please translate! Thanx!

Menschen treten in unser Leben und begleiten
uns eine Weile. Einige bleiben für immer,
denn sie hinterlassen ihre Spuren in unseren
Herzen.


Now the translation:

People come into our lives and guide
us for a while. Some will stay for ever,
because they leave their traces in our
Heart.

Goodbye At Last
by Barbi D

Saying goodbye is never easy
It's the hardest thing to do
But what hurts even more
Is not the chance to say it to you.

Yesterday is just a memory
Our laughter was sunny and bright
Then clouds started to gather
For you were no where in sight.

You were my first real love
And this I will never forget
How you left without a warning
No good-byes, my only regret.

Wherever I may be now
Always searching for another so true
To place my world of emotion
Handing my love to someone like you.

If again I must go there
And experience all the pain
I would do it in a minute
For all the good I would gain.

No matter what my wrongs
You offered only love
Until the day you left me
For your new home up above.

I know you still are with me
Your love is within my heart
Though life is no longer present
Our souls will never part.

This is given to you in honor
Of all that we did share
I just wanted you to know, dear,
How much I really did care.

I've just read the interview Michelle has done for Vogue..its very moving.  She talks very eloquently about her loss and how she is trying to deal with that and bringing up Matilda alone.

There was a quote from her that really brought a tear to my eye:

".....but every time I really miss him and wonder where he's gone, I just look at her."

I did a one day round trip Saturday to Toronto to meet MissisaugaRed and... watch the Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Click on the picture below to go to the thread where we started to post about the event.



Farewell and thank you Heath!

Gosh, I haven't been to this site for quite a while, not since the anniversary of Heath's death, but again I find myself drawn here with the release of the film.  I had the TV on in the background the other day when suddenly I heard Heath's beautiful and distinctive voice and it turned out to be an advert for the film, and my stomach lurched.  Oh Heath, all the old emotions are being stirred up again.  Just needed to share it with you guys because I know you get it.

Sometimes I look at the name of this board and just this phrase, "In Memory Of Heath Ledger" is like a punch to my heart. It's like I can't believe that I'm reading these words, it's not right. It shouldn't be. How is it possible? And all of a sudden it sinks in, and I start crying just from reading the title of this thread.

I came across this item in today's Globe and Mail (Toronto):

An Australian rapper who was a boyhood friend of Heath Ledger has released a music video the star directed shortly before his death.
N'fa Forster-Jones posted the 3-minute,31-second clip for his song Cause an Effect on his YouTube and MySpace pages on Thursday
Forster-Jones, who had been friends with Ledger since they were toddlers, said the video was shot in one day in the garage of Ledger's beachside apartment.

This is the link to the video, it's great to hear everything that N'fa has to say about Heath and their working process. They were friends since they were kids and he makes a beautiful tribute here.

Making of video 'Cause An Effect' (dir-Heath Ledger)

** There is one pap shot in the video. Since it's only one photo in a video of over 10 minutes and we figured this is something worth sharing with the members, the mods have decided to allow it.

I remember leaving A Knight's Tale early
and sneaking in to see Pearl Harbor,
the former just not being serious enough
for me at the time. I wanted something
big, dramatic, epic-in-scope, like Gladiator
or Braveheart, something inspirational.
Pearl Harbor was a bust - I kept guessing
at endings I thought would come but never
did. A few years later I saw Ned Kelly at
a house owned by some people from a church
I used to attend religiously.
I was the only one who really dug it, I think, for more
than Orlando Bloom or for Ledger's curly locks
and so on. Here was the inspiration I was
looking for, the sympathetic antihero
trying to make things right. Then there
was The Brothers Grimm, a great film to look
at if nothing else, with its earth tone reds
and grays, its trees straight out of Sleepy Hollow.
Looking back I think I saw every one of his
movies with a different girl, from 10 Things
which I saw with my sister. You could trace
my entire romantic development by the
curve of his career. And now he's gone.
It's strange how things can affect you that
you know probably shouldn't. How the absence
of someone you rarely even think about,
let alone know, can make you feel your own
mortality. But it happens. Heath Ledger is dead.
No more movies, no more dates who stare
at Ledger's head two stories tall. All that's left
are the DVDs, remnants, memories of things
that used to be brand new, unseen. Years later
I saw A Knight's Tale in its entirety and was
impressed by Ledger's acting, especially toward
the end when his character refuses so adamantly
to give up, to give in and run away, to quit.
Heath Ledger's dead, and I'm afraid there'll be no sequel.

"Brokeback mountain" had left in me an immense sorrow,
an unbearable cognition how irrecoverable the time is...
Once you let the chance slip away, you can never get it back.
Coz it passed.
Coz it floated away in the fast river of life.
I was devastated beyond the human's limitations.

Ennis Heath had gone without me knowing him well,
without me enjoying his fabulous talent when he was alive.
I truly felt his greatness only when he was already gone.
So irreparable time! So much sadness in me...



Little darlin, rest in peace
in my loving heart,
like this, always ...

I remember that it was very late here in Spain,so I was going to bed; but in the last moment,as if I have guessed that something has happenned,I went to my email account to take a last glance.And then I saw in my yahoo account first page the news...
My first reaction was not believing it and entering here to ask to tell me that it wasn't true,that it was some kind of stupid joke that somebody has done here in Spain because information didn't arrive well from USA...The following day was horrible,even if my Brokie coworker and me counted with the understanding and help of the rest of mates in our office,as I already explained in its moment...
And now that two years have passed,sometimes I have the same feeling; that everything has been a nightmare,a bad joke or an stupid marketing invention.And that some day he will appear telling that he had needed to escape from Hollywood noise and gossip to find himself...What a nonsense,no?.But if it were true... :_( :_( :_(

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by...

If you smile
With your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just...

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just...

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by...

If you smile
Through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile...

That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

No matter how many months and years I've left this beautiful site, no matter how many new emticons I see here when you write a message, no how many new members join and others are lost, and no matter how many years it's been since Heath Ledger's death, I still will remember how this place was my first home.

This place was where I grieved, where I felt comfort, and where I made new friends during the months after Heath's untimely death.

I remember where I was when Heath died. In my living room, playing a handheld game that I had just found and hadn't played in years. Mom was on the computer and dad was watching the news. I was too focused on the game when my mom told me to look up at the TV screen. Then she typed up something online and showed it to me. It said that Heath was found dead in his Soho apartment. I immediatly asked to go and I was the first one to post on here about it. I was speechless and my heart dropped that day. I must've been on here the rest of the night just watching the news expand around the world. It was heart-breaking.

Last night, at 12:00 in the morning on Janurary 22, 2010, I was in a movie theater looking up and seeing Heath Ledger on my screen..alive and incredible. It was the very last showing of the Imaginarium at our local theater. Everyone that I went with praised the film but the most popular comment abou the film was..."Why did he have to die?". I told everyone later on that night (we were sleeping over a friends house) that it today was the day Heath died, and everyone was stunned. I still remember him..and always will.

It might be two years, but Heath will forever be in my heart.

Where I live it has been raining all week, it is like the heavens are crying. And then today the sun broke through and it made me feel a little better. I thought of these wonderful words by Eric Clapton:
                   
                               Tears In Heaven

                           Would you know my name
                            If I saw you in heaven?
                           Would it be the same
                            If I saw you in heaven?
                           
                            I must be strong
                            And carry on,
                            'Cause I know I don't belong   
                            Here in heaven.

                            Would you hold my hand
                             If I saw you in heaven?
                             Would you help me stand
                              If I saw you in heaven?
                 
                             I'll find my way
                             Through night and day,
                             'Cause I know I just can't stay
                              Here in heaven.

                              Time can bring you down,
                              Time can bend your knees.
                              Time can break your heart,
                              Have you begging please, begging please

                              Beyond the door,
                              There's peace I'm sure,
                              And I know there'll be no more
                              Tears in heaven.
                     
                       * Dear Sweet Heath you will always be loved & missed *

I felt very sorry that on the 22nd I was away camping, sans internet access.  Exacerbating the already-there sadness that I'll doubtless always feel on the 22nd of January, was the keen awareness that I couldn't be here at camp, sharing my feelings with my Brokies, like I did on the first anniversary of our Heath's passing.

So, this is the first chance I've had to come pay my respects, and it does pain me that they come late.  :(


Well...what to say; I miss him and love him still, we all do.   :_(

Although two years have served to - very gradually - lessen the intensity of the pain and grief, they have not managed to make me love him less.  The contrary.  Two years without Heath's bodily presence have only served to grow my love for him.  The grief is quieter these days, I've reached as much "acceptance" as I probably ever will, but I love him more than ever.  The quieting of the intense, overwhelming grief of the first year deprived of Heath - which almost overshadowed, in a way, my love for him - has allowed me to feel closer to him, to feel him around more strongly, and see him in everything around me.  In the absence of that crushing grief that is always the strongest in that first year, I no longer exactly feel like he is even gone.  How can I truly feel he is gone, when I can feel his beautiful spirit around me whenever it is I take a moment to sense it?

We love you, Heath, just like this, always.
