“Heaven” / Memorable Fancies #2264

[“life life the other above in the light said to have been mine” – Samuel Beckett]

Yes, I guess that’s my new life, up above me there, bright and glowing like a tiny sun, receding upward into the sky. That’s my new life now, just as the priest said at my funeral; he was sure I’d make it to heaven, in spite of all my sins. That was his optimistic take on my soul that’s now slowly drifting out of sight, smaller and smaller as it approaches heaven.

The priest was right. The important part was saved. There it goes. I hope it’s happy.

I wonder if it remembers me.
