"I think about Marilyn a lot now and I wonder if there’s a heaven and if we’ll be together. She had all the beauty that God could bestow but then he took it away. He let us live and he took Marilyn away… I loved Marilyn." - Shelley Winters
Today, August 4th 2013; marks 51 years since the passing of Marilyn Monroe.
Marilyn was the flicker of candlelight when the darkness seemed endless. She was the ray of sun that shone through, no matter how many grey clouds blocked her way. She is the soft whisper of autumn wind that tickles your face as you watch the auburn leaves fall from the trees. She is the first snowflake to land upon your nose, giving you an icy kiss. I will not say she has died, because where light and hope exists she very much lives on. She is a star in every sense of the word. Whether you watch her on film, or in the night sky. She will always shine the brightest.
♡ Rest in peace, Marilyn Monroe ♡
