“For you do not know when the time will come. “Mark 13:33
When someone dies no one can prepare us for the emotions we experience at the lost. The numbness, the anger and the hurt that culminates with the tears that well up in your eyes.Words cannot express your feelings and all you are left with are the memories and the desire to meet them again in the afterlife.
One thing I am indeed grateful about is that I do not know the time when someone close to me will pass. I think if I knew that I would never let them out of my sight because I couldn’t bear the pain.
However, when someone close to me has passed I have learnt to make the loss manageable by through the memories contained in their articles of clothing, favourite places and TV shows. So when someone dies for me they are only a memory away. This is what always keeps them alive in my heart.
