Warning: Many tears ahead.

Lea Michele and Cory Monteith had been dating for about a year and a half when he unexpectedly died (opens in new tab) from a drug overdose at the age of 31. The Glee costars were absolutely in love in real life (opens in new tab) and Monteith's death was—understandably—hard on Michele (opens in new tab).

Even though she's found the strength to move forward with her life, it's clear that Michele still keeps Monteith close to her heart. As E! Online (opens in new tab) reports, the actress has been sharing a series of old personal photos on Instagram all week and the latest is a never-before-seen shot of her and Monteith, cuddling and looking utterly in love.

Between beautiful tribute photos like these and her number 5 tattoo (in honor of Monteith's football number in Glee), it's obvious that Michele will truly never stop loving Monteith.

BRB, crying forever.
