More permanent than Death

I used to think that only death would take someone away fom me. But I had learned that so many lesser things can steal someone away, just as completely, just as forever. They live, they breath, but you never get to touch them, you never see them nude, you never wake to their smile, the smell of their skin on your sheets. There are things so much less dramatic than death that are just as permanent.

This isn't by me, its From the ANITA BLAKE series written by Laurell K. Hamilton

I hope she doesn't mind me putting this here, it's too poignant to ignore and too true to want to beleive.
