Life is like a story
In that it has challenges
It has highs, it has lows,
But one thing life shouldn’t have,
Is an ending
For years I wondered,
“When I pass on, is my life over?”
It disturbed me,
Scared me even,
To think I would vanish when my life ended
But then I realized that…
That life doesn’t end if there is someone to remember it.
If you have someone who carries your story
Beyond you, who tells it
To your children
To your friends
Someone who keeps your story alive to the very last moment…
Then your life isn’t ending.
The End, Isn’t.
Life stopping for you doesn’t mean you’re gone forever.
And if you believe in it,
Then there is a life after this one,
A place where we go
When our time on earth, in this mortal world
Nothing ever truly ends, I learned
I learned that I don’t need to worry about the end
Because the end is never coming.
