The heartbreaking picture was captured by women dining at the restaurant on Valentine's Day.

Chasidy Gwaltney took the photo at a restaurant in Corpus Christi, Texas and posted it on social media Wednesday afternoon.

The man was sitting alone with two glasses of wine and seen crying with a napkin pushed against his eyes.

Chasidy Gwaltney wrote in her post:

"You know? We are all guilty of taking our other half for granted from time to time. We may forget to give a goodbye kiss, say I love you or just be so caught up in what we are doing at the moment that we don't notice the very little things that mean so much to our special someone. "

"I saw something today that has made me remember that we won't always have each other to hold, talk to, love, play with or even just aggravate every now and then."

"This picture speaks loudly and it may hurt your heart as it has mine."

"This man looks like he is spending Valentine's Day alone at first glance but that is actually his wife in that very beautiful bottle sitting on the table."

"Apparently, his love for her was and still is very strong as he takes her ashes out for Valentine's lunch date together."

"He even bought her a glass of wine."

"Please love your Sweetheart while you have the opportunity, you never know what tomorrow will bring or take away!"

The heartbreaking post has gone viral.

The post has been shared more than 400,000 times and has attracted 97k comments and 510k likes.

"He is living proof that love never dies even after we're gone," one woman wrote.

Another said,"I understand his feelings completely. My husband passed away 12 years ago. I miss him every day."

One user said," Omg this literally brought tears to my eyes."

"This was my hardest one without my love.so much emptiness even though you have memories," said another.
