AceShowbiz - Frances Bean Cobain remembered her father Kurt Cobain on his 30th death anniversary. Taking to Instagram, the model penned a lengthy tribute to her late dad along with throwback photos of the two.

In the post shared on Friday, April 5, the 31-year-old also included a black-and-white shot of his hands and pictures of Kurt from his childhood. She began her caption, "30 years ago my dad's life ended. The 2nd & 3rd photo capture the last time we were together while he was still alive. His mom Wendy would often press my hands to her cheeks & say, with a lulling sadness, 'you have his hands.' "

"She would breathe them in as if it were her only chance to hold him just a little bit closer, frozen in time. I hope she's holding his hands wherever they are," she added. "In the last 30 years my ideas around loss have been in a continuous state of metamorphosing. The biggest lesson learned through grieving for almost as long as I've been conscious, is that it serves a purpose."

Frances went on to note, "The duality of life & death, pain & joy, yin & yang, need to exist along side each other or none of this would have any meaning. It is the impermanent nature of human existence which throws us into the depths of our most authentic lives." She continued, "As It turns out, there is no greater motivation for leaning into loving awareness than knowing everything ends."

"I wish I could've known my Dad. I wish I knew the cadence of his voice, how he liked his coffee or the way it felt to be tucked in after a bedtime story," the visual artist further lamented. "I always wondered if he would've caught tadpoles with me during the muggy Washington summers, or if he smelled of Camel Lights & strawberry nesquik (his favorites, I've been told)."

Frances, whose mother is Courtney Love, added, "But there is also deep wisdom being on an expedited path to understanding how precious life is. He gifted me a lesson in death that can only come through the LIVED experience of losing someone." She then stated, "It's the gift of knowing for certain, when we love ourselves & those around us with compassion, with openness, with grace, the more meaningful our time here inherently becomes."

"Kurt wrote me a letter before I was born. The last line of it reads, 'wherever you go or wherever I go, I will always be with you,' " she revealed. "He kept this promise because he is present in so many ways. Whether it's by hearing a song or through the hands we share, in those moments I get to spend a little time with my dad & he feels transcendent."

Before finishing off her post, Frances shared a message to fans, "To anyone who has wondered what it would've looked like to live along side the people they have lost, I'm holding you in my thoughts today." She concluded, "The meaning of our grief is the same."
