Amiga del alma / soul mate

I didn't even not know this music until yesterday and now I just can't stop listening to it. 

A good colleague of mine lost her best friend yesterday. This song was her best friend's favourite. I did not know her, but I was following her battle with cancer. I am so sorry that she lost.

I am just sad. Sad for my dear colleague. Sad for her friend. And sad for her friend's little pre-school daughter who will have to grow up without her mom.  


Tragedies like this make me think of my Maria. I miss her. Can't believe she has been gone for already 6 years.  I started re-reading the story about Maria written by her husband. Whenever I come to the sentence:   "... a visitarla  su amiga del alma de Eslovenia, Klara. "

I realize how fortunate I was, that a person as wonderful as Maria considered me "amiga del alma" / a soul mate.

This is the true beauty of living: connecting with others and finding soul mates.

  1. So often I find other people's losses remind us of our own. I'm so sorry you are sad - for you, your friend, your colleague and her friend, and the little girl without her mother.

    On the other hand, I like the song, and I love the phrase "amiga del alma."

    Your last sentence is perfect.
