And on that day, the Father looked down and said 'HEATH, MY SON,YOU LOOK TIRED.  YOU HAVE DONE SO VERY WELL WITH THE MANY TASKS I HAVE SET FOR YOU'.

'AND NOW, IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO COME  HOME'.

'I HAVE SET WATCH OVER YOUR DAUGHTER, MATILDA, AND MY ANGELS COME EVEN NOW TO LIFT YOU HERE TO BE WITH ME'.

And Heath looked around one last time, smiled, and said, 'THANK YOU, FATHER, I'M COMING  :)'.

Ennis’s eyes gone bright with shock, mouth opening then closing again. “Love?” Ennis said finally, voice strangling in his throat.

Jack smiled sad. “Yeah, Ennis. Love.” Leaned forward and kissed Ennis’s temple, whispered, “What’d you think it was, all this time?”

Just watched "The Dark Knight" last night.
Heath, you did it again. You blew me away!!
I've only been swept off my feet like that once before - by Ennis.

I thought I was going to cry, but there wasn't really time, you know? ???
The Joker was phenomenon and everytime he left the screen, I was waiting for his next appearance. Through the entire movie there was death quiet (except when everyone was laughing at The Joker, he was terrifying but hilarious at the same time) , everyone listened intensely and was totally into the movie.
When the credits were listed in the end, everyone started to get up and leave, but I really wanted to see Heath's name in the credits!! Everybody was pushing me, but I moved reeeeeeeeealy slowly and kept my eyes on the screen. I just had to see his name, I don't really now why... And I got to, just before I literally got pushed out of the room (sorry, folks).

But it was a mindblowing experience... Heath, you did it again...

Two weeks ago I visited a sanctuary in Girona's province that is caved in the rock itself;as you can see,the ceiling and part of the walls are made of stone.The view from this place is so beautiful that made me think about the two friends of us whom we've lost lately.And I burned two candles,one for Heath and one for Rajel;these two that are a little separated from the others.I'm agnostic,but sometimes I feel the need of doing that for my beloved ones who aren't already here.

I hope this is the correct place, if not please feel free to move it.

I have just finished watching 'The Order' again (I think it was also released under the name 'the Sin-Eater'.  Anyway, as a sci-fi/horror flick, it wasn't widely accepted and overall, never added up to what we now know of the level of Heath's legacy.  But for those of  who really care, I suggest you watch it, for you wlll see, even then, in a few scenes, what was coming.  When Heath discovers the fate of his love, and meets his destiny, you will see some great acting, back in 2003.  Heath knew, I think, where he was going and step-by-step improved his art, achieved his goals and took us there.  And to take this thought of Heath one step further, for us to ponder, there is an interview on YouTube where he said (and this is the only place I've heard it, and never seen it in writing):  speaking of his role in theOrder -'its about love and what happens when you don't act upon love and follow your instincts on love'.   Something familiar, brokies?

I know how you feel, BBA. I wanted to see his name on the big screen. That was the first time ever when I've seen Heath's movie in a theatre. And as you said, everyone was leaving, but I got up and sat on the side aisle, staring at the credits as they rolled, first with the names of the stars, then again, in smaller print, the cast. And finally, the words In Memory. I don't know why it was important for me to see that, but it was. I did not feel the experience was complete, until that final part rolled off the screen. Then I was ready to leave, and noticed that I was alone in the theatre, and I was amused, and happy to walk out. The gravity of the movie did not hit me until the day after. Then like watching Brokeback Mountain for the first time, I could not stop thinking about it. Heath's performance had always had that effect on me, even in Patriot, when I first saw his amazing abilities. I think it took about two weeks before I finally managed to distract myself to forget about the movie, and Heath. With Brokeback Mountain, as you said, ... he swept me away and changed my life forever. There is no forgetting now, or ever.

Heath, you are loved, like this, always.

hi, rlh03, I am glad you liked The Order, and did not divulge the plot. I haven't seen it yet, but was hesitant at first when getting hold of it. I am not a horror/dark movie fan. The cult thing on the jacket did not appeal to me. But I got it because Heath's earlier movies are hard to find, and it was on sale. I am holding on to it and watch it next year.

I will keep an eye out for that interview. Please post the link to it if you still have it. Heath career is certainly one long exploration of the many aspects of love. Even Dark Knight, is about love, and the opposite of love, love and anti-love, where it is about the selfishness of the egotistical joker, and the selflessness of the altruistic Batman.

Heath, you are loved, like this, always.

lancecowboy, the interview I mentioned is Heath talking about his interpretation of the priest he plays in the movie.  You can find it by doing a google 'youtube Heath Ledger interview'  It should be the first posting to come up.  The video is short, only 2 minutes 18 seconds long.  What you are looking will occur at about 1 minute 4 seconds in.  Good luck.  Let me know how you come out.  And yes, it is a cult movie, and not one of Heath's overall best, but there are a couple of tremendous scenes.  You will recognize what I'm speaking of when you see it.   :)

in British GQ Christian says he finds himself referring to Heath in the present tense  :-\\ trust me he's not the only one  :\'( I'm just grateful he had so much great work left behind to appreciate and the fact he went out as he came in stealing the show just as he did in Ten Things

Very familiar indeed dear rlh03  O0.  I have the DVD "The order", it's a very strange movie but I like it, Heath's performance is so great  (t)  I miss him so much  :\'(.

So right on, Lancecowboy. In some way, it did complete the experience to see Heath's name on the screen.
And I can't stop thinking about it either, just like after watching BBM for the very first time. The Joker keeps playing with my head 24/7!!
Heath really proved to us once again, just what an unique and incredible actor, he truly was... And always will be!
You're totally right. Phenomenal performances like that - it touches your heart and it changes your life.

Thanks, rlh03, that's a great video. I've never seen it before. Heath looked great in it. He still fidgeted like he did in all the other interviews, and you can see the many thoughts fighting their way to get out, like the portrait of him with the two whispers fighting for their part of his attention. I look forward to watching The Order, now that I understand Heath's motivation in it, his research into the physical mannerism and background of the character.

Thanks, again. I will post my reaction after I've seen it. At the moment, like I said, I plan on waiting till Jan. 09. But who knows, my resolve may breakdown, and I may watch it sooner. Having Dark Knight to go to for now, keeps my mind occupied.  :)

Pour les jours silencieux, où j'écoute tomber la pluie,
Et les matins frileux qui me font regretter nos nuits.
Pour toutes ces différences qui créent l'indifférence, depuis,
Pour les heures passées à regarder tourner l'ennui.

Et les trésors cachés qu'on enterre à jamais sans vie,
Pour tous les souvenirs qui s'ennuient à mourir, et puis,
Plus je pense à toi et plus encore je m'aperçois
Que le temps qui passe ne me guérira pas.
Rien ne te remplace, je manque de toi, je meurs de toi,
Et je m'aperçois que tu manques à l'espace.


Pour cacher mes erreurs que je commets par cœur, et si,
Au profit du bonheur, j'échangeais la douleur sans bruit.
Pour ces sommeils qui dansent, comme des récompenses enfuies,
Comme le bleu des nuances devient gris de souffrance, aussi.

Pour les soleils violets que tu dissimulais meurtrie,
Et les rires empruntés qui te raccrochaient à la vie.
Plus je pense à toi et plus encore je m'aperçois
Que le temps qui passe ne me guérira pas.


Rien ne te remplace, je manque de toi, je meurs de toi,
Et je m'aperçois que tu manques à l'espace.
Laisse-moi respirer, juste une heure encore,
Cette fleur fanée, puisque la mort ennemie a pris l'amour d'une vie.

P. Fiori




For quiet days, when I listen to the falling rain,
And morning cautious that I do regret our nights.
For all these differences that create indifference since
For hours spent watching turn boredom.

And the hidden treasures we bury forever lifeless,
For all the memories that are bored to death, and then
The more I think of you and more I realize
Whether the passage of time does not heal me.
Nothing replaces you, I miss you, I die for you,
And I realize that you lost space.

To hide my mistakes that I commit a heart, and if,
For the benefit of happiness, j'échangeais pain without noise.
For those who sleep dance, as rewards fled,
As the blue shades of gray is suffering, too.

For purple suns that you dissimulais wounded,
And the laughter that you borrowed raccrochaient to life.
The more I think of you and more I realize
Whether the passage of time does not heal me.


Nothing replaces you, I miss you, I die for you,
And I realize that you lost space.
Let me breathe, just one hour,
This flower fanée since the death enemy took the love of a lifetime.
As the moon lingers a moment over the bitterroots, before its descent into the invisible, my mind is filled with song. I find I am humming softly, not to the music, but something else, some place else, a place remembered; a field of grass where no one seemed to have been except a deer, and the memory is strengthened by the feeling of you, dancing in my awkward arms.............

There's a song in Hebrew, that a well known Israeli songwriter named Ehud Manor wrote to his daughter many years ago, when she was little. It's called "My Second Childhood". Every time I hear it now, I think about Heath and Matilda. It reminds me so much of the great love he had for her, and when I hear this song I imagine sometimes that it's Heath singing it to his little girl. He could've written these words himself, I think he would've identified with them completely. This song became associated with Heath to me. I only wish that he could've gone through his second childhood with her, and see her growing up to be three years old, and four years old, and five years old...

I tried to translate the lyrics to English, any mistakes are mine.

This is my second childhood,
Whatever you'll give me I'll take
This is my second childhood,
With you.
This is my second childhood,
The burden of years has been forgotten
This is my second Childhood,
My heart is opening.

Through your eyes daughter,
I see and re-discover the world
Through your hands I'll learn
To touch the ocean waves again.
Through your lips daughter,
A new flavour to the words
And with you I'll grow up again without fear
We're already three years old.

This is my second childhood,
Whatever you'll give me I'll take
This is my second childhood,
With you.
This is my second childhood,
The burden of years has been forgotten
This is my second Childhood,
My heart is opening.

Through your songs daughter,
I'll learn again to listen to the creation
In your footsteps I'll walk
On the way to the Seven Wonders.
In your smiles daughter,
There's a new morning to the nights
And with you life has a reason –
We're already four years old.

In your looks daughter,
I'll learn to love again without thinking
In your tears I'll shiver
Like the end of the world is near.
In your hugs daughter
A thrill goes through my body
And with you I'll seek another day
And we're already five years old.

This is my second childhood,
Whatever you'll give me I'll take
This is my second childhood,
With you.



(If anyone wants to hear the song, here's a link )

I hope this is the correct place, if not please feel free to move it.

I have just finished watching 'The Order' again (I think it was also released under the name 'the Sin-Eater'.  Anyway, as a sci-fi/horror flick, it wasn't widely accepted and overall, never added up to what we now know of the level of Heath's legacy.  But for those of  who really care, I suggest you watch it, for you wlll see, even then, in a few scenes, what was coming.  When Heath discovers the fate of his love, and meets his destiny, you will see some great acting, back in 2003.  Heath knew, I think, where he was going and step-by-step improved his art, achieved his goals and took us there.  And to take this thought of Heath one step further, for us to ponder, there is an interview on YouTube where he said (and this is the only place I've heard it, and never seen it in writing):  speaking of his role in theOrder -'its about love and what happens when you don't act upon love and follow your instincts on love'.   Something familiar, brokies?

I caught this film by accident on Brit TV late the other night.  I have to say that I wasn't particulary overwhelmed with the film, but couldn't stop watching because Heath is always so damn watchable.  I just wanted to see him and hear his voice.  But I know what you mean, I thought he seemed a bit lost early on in the film, but when it came to the emotional stuff later on, didn't he just come to life, and yes, there were things that he did and said, especailly little noises, that just made me think of some of the scenes in BM.  I agree, you can really see how he has progressed as an actor.

Just watched "The Dark Knight" last night.
Heath, you did it again. You blew me away!!
I've only been swept off my feet like that once before - by Ennis.


I can only agree with you.  I saw TDK last night and was totally blown away by Heath's performance, it was something pretty special.  I also just found myself waiting for his next appearance on screen.  It was amazing yet sad at the same time.  This is going to sound a little crazy, but I found myself getting really upset in one scene, can't really remember the details, but it was some kind of fight scene, and his lower arm and hand were around someone and they were the only part of his body that wasn't covered in clothes or makeup, and I felt upset that his arm and hand were never going to hold anyone again.  Does that sound a little mad?  I've really got it bad right now!  :\'(

I know absolutely exactly the feelings you are saying, DHW.  That part of the movie when you saw his arm and knew he would never hold anyone again.  And especially wht you said above.  We're rejoicing in him right now because of this amazing film, but after a while...  It's all just plain sad.

Heath, baby, how could this have happened?
The truth is... sometimes I miss you so much I can hardly stand it.

Keren, what beautiful song lyrics. As soon as my system gets fixed, I'll have a listen as well. Thank you for posting it. :^^)

It really is quite the up and down time right now, isn't it? Hard not to have conflicting emotions when you want to celebrate his talent and accomplishment in TDK, but at the same time it can't help but remind you that he is indeed gone, especially when watching all of those wonderful cast interviews, from which he is conspicuously absent. :-\\

Great big  :ghug: to everyone.
For a moment in our lives. Forever in our hearts.

Pour les jours silencieux, où j'écoute tomber la pluie,
Et les matins frileux qui me font regretter nos nuits.
Pour toutes ces différences qui créent l'indifférence, depuis,
Pour les heures passées à regarder tourner l'ennui.

Et les trésors cachés qu'on enterre à jamais sans vie,
Pour tous les souvenirs qui s'ennuient à mourir, et puis,
Plus je pense à toi et plus encore je m'aperçois
Que le temps qui passe ne me guérira pas.
Rien ne te remplace, je manque de toi, je meurs de toi,
Et je m'aperçois que tu manques à l'espace.


Pour cacher mes erreurs que je commets par cœur, et si,
Au profit du bonheur, j'échangeais la douleur sans bruit.
Pour ces sommeils qui dansent, comme des récompenses enfuies,
Comme le bleu des nuances devient gris de souffrance, aussi.

Pour les soleils violets que tu dissimulais meurtrie,
Et les rires empruntés qui te raccrochaient à la vie.
Plus je pense à toi et plus encore je m'aperçois
Que le temps qui passe ne me guérira pas.


Rien ne te remplace, je manque de toi, je meurs de toi,
Et je m'aperçois que tu manques à l'espace.
Laisse-moi respirer, juste une heure encore,
Cette fleur fanée, puisque la mort ennemie a pris l'amour d'une vie.

P. Fiori




For quiet days, when I listen to the falling rain,
And morning cautious that I do regret our nights.
For all these differences that create indifference since
For hours spent watching turn boredom.

And the hidden treasures we bury forever lifeless,
For all the memories that are bored to death, and then
The more I think of you and more I realize
Whether the passage of time does not heal me.
Nothing replaces you, I miss you, I die for you,
And I realize that you lost space.

To hide my mistakes that I commit a heart, and if,
For the benefit of happiness, j'échangeais pain without noise.
For those who sleep dance, as rewards fled,
As the blue shades of gray is suffering, too.

For purple suns that you dissimulais wounded,
And the laughter that you borrowed raccrochaient to life.
The more I think of you and more I realize
Whether the passage of time does not heal me.


Nothing replaces you, I miss you, I die for you,
And I realize that you lost space.
Let me breathe, just one hour,
This flower fanée since the death enemy took the love of a lifetime.

Merci, Mikele, for the photo of Heath, so wonderfully peaceful and beautiful, and for the words, the laughter..., the passage of time... Time will heal, but slowly.  :ghug:
Heath, you are loved, like this, always.

There's a song in Hebrew, that a well known Israeli songwriter named Ehud Manor wrote to his daughter many years ago, when she was little. It's called "My Second Childhood". Every time I hear it now, I think about Heath and Matilda. It reminds me so much of the great love he had for her, and when I hear this song I imagine sometimes that it's Heath singing it to his little girl. He could've written these words himself, I think he would've identify with them completely. This song became associated with Heath to me. I only wish that he could've gone through his second childhood with her, and see her growing up to be three years old, and four years old, and five years old...

I tried to translate the lyrics to English, any mistakes are mine.

This is my second childhood,
Whatever you'll give me I'll take
This is my second childhood,
With you.
This is my second childhood,
The burden of years has been forgotten
This is my second Childhood,
My heart is opening.

Through your eyes daughter,
I see and re-discover the world
Through your hands I'll learn
To touch the ocean waves again.
Through your lips daughter,
A new flavour to the words
And with you I'll grow up again without fear
We're already three years old.

This is my second childhood,
Whatever you'll give me I'll take
This is my second childhood,
With you.
This is my second childhood,
The burden of years has been forgotten
This is my second Childhood,
My heart is opening.

Through your songs daughter,
I'll learn again to listen to the creation
In your footsteps I'll walk
On the way to the Seven Wonders.
In your smiles daughter,
There's a new morning to the nights
And with you life has a reason –
We're already four years old.

In your looks daughter,
I'll learn to love again without thinking
In your tears I'll shiver
Like the end of the world is near.
In your hugs daughter
A thrill goes through my body
And with you I'll seek another day
And we're already five years old.

This is my second childhood,
Whatever you'll give me I'll take
This is my second childhood,
With you.


(If anyone wants to hear the song, here's a link )

Thank you so much for this Keren. This is so beautiful, and brings tears, but bittersweet because as has been said so often, Matilda is so much like Heath, that I have no doubt Heath would certainly live through her, when she learns to surf, and touch the wave, when she learns to talk, speak her lines in a play, when she travels and see the wonders of the world, and every sunset she sees, she will share the beauty of life with the man who gave us all so much.

 :ghug: FlwrChild  :ghug: I kinda understand what it means now, when people cry at weddings and graduations. Because I feel the same watching the Dark Knight, pride and admiration in Heath's accomplishment, and sadness in the necessary step of letting go, when the bond of love is stretched so the one loved is set free.

 :ghug: :^^)

Oh Andrew, this is so beautiful. And it's just like what Michelle said - that Matilda is the spitting image of her father, and when they watch her they can see him in her. And just what Heath said, that in a way he feels good about dying because he knows he will leave on through his daughter. But I know he would've wanted to stay here and watch her grow up, and be there with her.

A beautiful song performed by an excellent Israeli artist called MATI CASPI that composed this song too.   O0

I can only agree with you.  I saw TDK last night and was totally blown away by Heath's performance, it was something pretty special.  I also just found myself waiting for his next appearance on screen.  It was amazing yet sad at the same time.  This is going to sound a little crazy, but I found myself getting really upset in one scene, can't really remember the details, but it was some kind of fight scene, and his lower arm and hand were around someone and they were the only part of his body that wasn't covered in clothes or makeup, and I felt upset that his arm and hand were never going to hold anyone again.  Does that sound a little mad?  I've really got it bad right now!  :\'(   

That's not crazy at all! I understand just how you feel.  :ghug:

After watching the movie I went home and watched clips on Youtube. I shouldn't have done that. Cause' it really made me realize that the experience of watching a new movie with Heath was over. For the last time. It's a feeling that still seems very strange to me.  :\'(
