Muziek op zondag; Death and all his friends

Those who are dead, are not dead
They're just living in my head
And since I fell for that spell
I am living there as well
- Coldplay

As I said in my earlier blogs this week; it's been a week of grieving for me. With this blog I hope to conclude the whole week and look forward to a more happier year.

Quotes and Pics 265; Death and Loss

It's been a strange week, in the sense that it's been one of loss and grieving. My uncle died and we had his funeral yesterday. Thursday it was ten years ago that my cousin died age 37 and today my dad would have been 75 if he'd lived. He died almost 15 years ago age 60.
As a child January was one of the birthday months. Dad's, aunts and uncles. But now, nothing but grieving, remembering and a feeling of so many missing. 

So this week my themed blogs are all about death and loss. It's my way of dealing with it I suppose.

Art on Friday; Death and Loss

It's not a popular subject but today is my uncle's funeral and I guess it's my way of dealing with it, coping with it. Writing a poem (yesterday's blog) or making quotes (tomorrow) posting songs (probably Sunday) and today this. It's a grieving process of sorts. So for today's Art on Friday paintings about death and loss.

Herbert Draper-The Lament for Icarus

Dante Gabriel Rossetti-Dante's dream about the death of Beatrice

Jean Broc-The Death of Hyacinthos

John Everett Millais-Ophelia

William-Adolphe Bouguereau-The first Mourning

John William Waterhouse-Gather ye rosebuds while ye may

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.

Robert Herrick

I'll be seeing you

I’ll be seeing you
In all the memories of old
In all my silly childhood memories
I’ll see you in a daydream
Reminiscing of how it used to be
I’ll hear you telling a funny joke
Laughing the hardest about it

I’ll miss you
Every moment of my life
I’ll miss the time we had
Or even the time we could have had
I’ll miss you
Yes I will miss you so

We will see each other again
Someday in other life time
We all leave our mark on this world
And you sure left one in mine

Ik zal je weer zien
In alle oude herinneringen
In al die malle jeugdherinneringen
Ik zal je weer zien in een dagdroom
Mijmerend over hoe het was
Ik zal je weer horen hoe je een mop verteld
Jijzelf om het hardst lachend

Ik zal je missen
Elk moment van mijn leven
Ik zal de tijd die we hadden missen
Maar meer nog de tijd die we niet meer hadden
Ik zal je zo missen
Ja ik zal je erg missen

We zullen elkaar weer zien
Ooit in een ander leven
We laten allemaal onze stempel achter in dit leven
En jij hebt dat zeker gedaan in dat van mij
