Moments Between Life And Death - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Separating life and death is not easy, they are both
vibrant and alive, it's just those moments between
them that are silent and mysterious.

How does your soul leave your body and enter heaven
without affecting your being, keeping it intact for
the most part as we look at it.

Shutting down the brain, lungs, heart and stopping
everything else as a result, except for hearing, for
you can still hear a half hour after dying.

Wonder if you remember what is being said afterwards
in these sparse minutes between life and death, knowing
that you remember nothing of life on earth when dying.

Only having been resuscitated will you remember it,
as it comes flooding into your mind then, an amazing
feat to be sure.

    Magnificent penning...Right up my alley to boot...Intriguing info on a persons ability to hear for 30min after expiring...
    Yes, indeed I too wonder now in knowing this, what some rich souls have heard as family members began talking about the Will...It'd be enough to make a deadman deaf! ! ! Nice Work, Rose ~FjR~
