Three and a half years after Cory Monteith's passing, Lea Michele is proving that her late ex-boyfriend is still very much in her thoughts with a newly shared throwback photo of the pair.

The Glee star took to Instagram on Monday to play tribute to her former love, whom she co-starred opposite in the hit Fox series in 2009 and dated for over a year. He passed away from a drug overdose at age 31 in 2013.

The intimate polaroid-style photo, which is simply marked "Bleeker St 2012," shows the 30-year-old cozying up to her boyfriend and resting her head on his chest while dressed in a white T-shirt, and fans were quick to flood her comments section with messages of comfort.

Over the past couple years, the Scream Queens actress has shown that Monteith still has a special place in her heart by sharing throwback photos of the pair and even getting a tattoo of the number five as a tribute to the football jersey number Monteith wore as a quarterback on Glee.

"We may not have gotten to share a lifetime together.. But the memories.. they're the best of my life.. Love you Cory," Michele captioned an Instagram photo back in July in honor of the third anniversary of Monteith's passing.

We're not crying, you're crying.
