After All Tomorrow Is Another Day

“We are at the age where we are starting to lose people.”

Today, I met up with one of my closest friends from HS.  We hadn’t seen each other in months. We met at a local coffee shop and it felt like we had never left each other.

During the conversation, we spoke about loved ones who had left us this year. I explained how I had seen a loved one’s body minutes after their soul had left. I almost couldn’t believe it was the same person. There was nothing behind their eyes. I was taken back by the blank stare and as I looked back, the body reminded me of wax. I will never forget this image and sometimes I wish I could. However, this image also seems to give me peace. In my view, their soul had left their body and moved on to a  better place.

I’m not sure what I believe in, but I know that there is a God. Sometimes I wonder if those who believe so little in God are the ones who have never seen a body without a soul.

  1. I witnessed a dead body for the first time this year! It is definitely life changing, and I don’t think it is a visual you will be able to remove… The man was an acquaintance, but he will be forever remembered by me and in my heart.
