A beautiful spirit taken from us too soon

A beautiful body laid to rest

A beautiful light that will shine down on us always


Rest in peace Heath. We love you.
For a moment in our lives. Forever in our hearts.

O may I join the choir invisible
Of those immortal dead who live again
In minds made better by their presence.

That purest heaven, be to other souls
The cup of strength in some great agony.


George Eliot

Heath, I have loved you since first my eyes saw you, and I will until I meet you on that final shore...

Sleep in peace and quite my friend. Your time on this earthly place is done. Ya did good and you helped this old man find a reason to live. Thank you.
There was some open space between what he knew and what he tried to believe, but nothing could be done about it, and if you can't fix it you've got to stand it.

Ennis, riding against the wind back to the sheep in the treacherous, drunken darken light, thought he'd never had such a good time, felt he could paw the white out of the moon.

I hope they are standing on the beach, the rolling waves soothing them as they lap against the shore;
watching his spirit dance in the sunlight on the waves.
A light on the water All souls pass
I wish peace and comfort to his family, friends and all who love him.
Rest in peace, Heath. Sleep well, friend.

William Shakespeare ~ Sonnet XVIII.

“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?”


SHALL I compare thee to a summer’s day?   
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:   
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,   
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:   
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,   
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;   
And every fair from fair sometime declines,   
By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;   
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,   
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,   
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st;   
  So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,   
  So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.   


Support bacteria, they are the only culture some people have!


If you press me to say why I loved him, I can say no more than because he was he, and I was I.
~ Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (1533-1592)

Yo quiero ser llorando el hortelano
de la tierra que ocupas y estercolas,
compañero del alma, tan temprano.

Alimentando lluvias, caracoles
Y órganos mi dolor sin instrumento,
a las desalentadas amapolas
daré tu corazón por alimento.

Tanto dolor se agrupa en mi costado,
que por doler me duele hasta el aliento.

Un manotazo duro, un golpe helado,
un hachazo invisible y homicida,
un empujón brutal te ha derribado.

No hay extensión más grande que mi herida,
lloro mi desventura y sus conjuntos
y siento más tu muerte que mi vida.

Ando sobre rastrojos de difuntos,
y sin calor de nadie y sin consuelo
voy de mi corazón a mis asuntos.

Temprano levantó la muerte el vuelo,
temprano madrugó la madrugada,
temprano estás rodando por el suelo.

No perdono a la muerte enamorada,
no perdono a la vida desatenta,
no perdono a la tierra ni a la nada.

En mis manos levanto una tormenta
de piedras, rayos y hachas estridentes
sedienta de catástrofe y hambrienta

Quiero escarbar la tierra con los dientes,
quiero apartar la tierra parte
a parte a dentelladas secas y calientes.

Quiero minar la tierra hasta encontrarte
y besarte la noble calavera
y desamordazarte y regresarte

Volverás a mi huerto y a mi higuera:
por los altos andamios de mis flores
pajareará tu alma colmenera
de angelicales ceras y labores.

Volverás al arrullo de las rejas
de los enamorados labradores.

Alegrarás la sombra de mis cejas,
y tu sangre se irá a cada lado
disputando tu novia y las abejas.

Tu corazón, ya terciopelo ajado,
llama a un campo de almendras espumosas
mi avariciosa voz de enamorado.

A las aladas almas de las rosas...
de almendro de nata te requiero,:
que tenemos que hablar de muchas cosas,
compañero del alma, compañero.
Friend of my soul, I want to be
the tearful gardener of the earth
you occupy, and enrich, all too soon.

My grief without purpose feeding
the rain, the snail-shells and organs,
I’ll give your heart for food
to the desolate poppies.

Such sorrow gathers in my chest,
that I mourn with painful breath.

A harsh slap, an icy blow,
an invisible, murderous axe-stroke,
a brutal thrust has felled you.

There’s no expanse big enough for my hurt,
I weep for my misfortune and yours together
and I feel your death more than I do my life.

I walk on the tracks of the dead,
and without warmth from anyone, or consolation
I go from my feelings to my work.

Too soon death lifted in flight,
too soon the dawn broke,
too soon you’re surrounded with earth.

No forgiveness for lovesick death,
no forgiveness for thankless life,
no forgiveness for earth or nothingness.

A storm rises, in my hands,
of rocks, lightning bolts, harsh axes,
thirsty and hungry for catastrophes.

I want to gnaw at the earth with my teeth,
I want to take the earth apart bit by bit
with dry, burning bites.

I want to mine the earth till I find you,
and kiss your noble skull,
and un-shroud you, and return you.

You’ll return to my garden, my fig tree:
In the high trellises of flowers,
birdlike your soul, the hive
of angelic waxes and labours.

You’ll return to the cooing at windows
of farm-workers in their lovemaking.

You’ll brighten the shadow of my brow,
and your girl and the bees will go along,
on both sides, arguing over your blood.

My eager voice of a lover
calls from a field of foaming almonds,
to your heart, already ruined velvet.

I summon you to the winged souls
of the creamy almond blossoms,
we’ve so many things to speak of,
friend, friend of my soul

when the risk
to remain tight
in a bud
was more painful

it took to blossom"

Meeresblick

Denk dir ein Bild. Weites Meer. 
Ein Segelschiff setzt seine weißen Segel
und gleitet hinaus in die offene See.
Du siehst, wie es kleiner und kleiner wird.
Wo Wasser und Himmel sich treffen, verschwindet es.
Da sagt jemand: Nun ist es gegangen.
Ein anderer sagt: Es kommt.

Der Tod ist ein Horizont,
und ein Horizont ist nichts anderes,
als die Grenze unseres Sehens.
Wenn wir um einen Menschen trauern,
freuen sich andere,
ihn hinter der Grenze wiederzusehen.

Who's to say where the wind will take you
Who's to say what it is will break you
I don't know where the wind will blow
Who's to know when the time has come around
I don't want to see you cry
I know that this is not goodbye

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make

Thank you Heath, for all that you've given me. The world is a poorer and sadder place now you're no longer in it, but you made it a better place in the short time you were here and will continue to do so, as those of us whose hearts you touched will keep your legacy and your memory alive. Rest in peace now, little darling. I will never forget you.

das geht uns an; das einzuordnen wird

Never Alone
by Rodney Belcher



I feel you in the morning
When at first I awake
Your thought is with me
With each decision I make

You'd been around forever
Since the first breath I took
Now I have to go on alone
But for love, I need not look

Cause by what you bestowed
In our short time together
Will last in my heart
Forever and ever

Although you've left
And now walk above
I'm never alone
I'm wrapped in your love

Enjoy now your long waited reward
Feel peace that your love continues on
What was taught to me, will be taught to mine
Cause you live on in me even after you've gone

COME not, when I am dead,
To drop thy foolish tears upon my grave,
To trample round my fallen head,
And vex the unhappy dust thou wouldst not save.
There let the wind sweep and the plover cry;
    But thou, go by.

Child, if it were thine error or thy crime
I care no longer, being all unblest:
Wed whom thou wilt, but I am sick of time,
And I desire to rest.
Pass on, weak heart, and leave me where I lie;
    Go by, go by.

Heath - "This river carries me from the dark to the light
              so I have to say goodbye, my friends.
              But if my boat from your sight disappears
              is not for my travel has ended,
              but for the river bends towards the sea"

Jake - "Time, fate.....everything aims at parting you,
            and actually it does.
            But friendship knows no frontiers
            and it will be as if he had always
            his own hand on your own."

Heath & Jake - So honoured by meeting both you through such a wonderful and emotional movie like Brokeback
                        Mountain. Thank you so much for giving it to us.
         
                                                    Love from Megalyn08

I held a jewel in my fingers
And went to sleep
The day was warm, and winds were prosy
I said, "Twill keep"

I woke - and chide my honest fingers,
The Gem was gone
And now, an Amethyst remembrance
Is all I own

Heath     Rest In Peace

You were a beautiful man and I wish that I'd known you.



Beauty, midnight, vision dies:
Let the winds of dawn that blow
Softly round your dreaming head
Such a day of welcome show
Eye and knocking heart may bless,
Find our mortal world enough;
Noons of dryness find you fed
By the involuntary powers,
Nights of insult let you pass
Watched by every human love.

Heath I first came to know you in 10 things but came to love you as one of my favorite actors as Ennis and like so many others I was crushed by the news of your death.  But I hope you are resting in peace in knowing that you were apart of something that changed the lives of so many people.

Goodbye and Thank you

I may not have the candle to light but I lit a candle and I feel it burn in my heart.
I always carry that lighted candle within my heart with the message I knew Heath would make him happy.

I am a straight female but I learn to move you all closer in my heart because of only one reason Brokeback Mountain shared to all of us.. the unity and love.

To all the beautiful people and all the gorgeous person on this forum and all over the world.. Heath Ledger as Ennis and not only of Ennis but his true self  of understanding each one of us  in his own words and speech . that love is for all.. whoever you are.

I will keep the candle burning inside me as long as I live.

Heath, you taught me to love. Thank you my dearest.
