What is there to fathom

When you have reached

Where lost souls bottom;

Later washed up on the beach.


No one to mourn this soul-

Another john doe of the sea.

Placed on a cold slab in the morgue,

No deposit, no return, your end.

What an incredible link to make between the finality of death and a phrase that means no recycling. It's a sad thing, yet you entice us to think of it anyway. Very effective. Be well, Kathy

How sad, but real. As a nurse that's worked many medical areas, I know the sadness in this....Thank you for sharing a piece of life...

God bless,

I cannot fathom reaching:

"Where lost souls bottom;
Later washed up on the beach."

Lost by Suicide? Lost by murder?
Lost by a freak accident! I went to visit
an unclaimed body that was found road side
one time as he was my age at the time (17yrs)
I will never forget how I felt to look at him laying there "No Deposit-No Return" at the morgue.

and you know in every situation
all we ever need & have ever needed is the Lord
& I take comfort knowing he claims us all!!
Even Those Lost Souls...
Love & Jesus
Reviewed by Lily of Lough Neagh C. Dennis-Woosley
Sad very sad for that poor soul and something not unknown this day and age. But those with compassion do mourn for them like myself.

Love and Light
Reviewed by Ronald Hull
I get multiple thoughts from this. First the idea that many lost at sea remain nameless after storms and tsunamis. and the second is that our throwaway society results in many nameless unknown death of sea creatures and birds.

Sounds pretty much like the ending of Jerry to me.
