Often patients who are about to die will shed a single tear, and in some instances a second tear. This phenomenon known as lacrima mortis or the tear of death is a source of mystery that transcends this mortal realm. But mystery surrounds this event. Lwema Matthew relates the story of a blind nine-year-old with a terminal illness who said he was in contact with three angels and was able to accurately describe what people were wearing even though his eyes had been surgically removed.
Palliative care workers and family members attending the dying have often witnessed the shedding of a single tear, or often two, as a loved one leaves this world. As he was passing and we were talking to him, a tear welled up in his eye.
I went and sat beside him… telling him I loved him He let another tear fall. It broke my heart. My suggestion is not to feel sadness over these final tears. If we are privileged enough to be present at this moment of passage, it will become a fond memory in time. Some nursing staffs attending the dying provide a tear cloth the family may use to treasure the final tear of a loved one. Some have incorporated these into flower bouquets at a wedding or some such thing, an attempt to share the beauty of what we cannot see in these events.
Doctor I. Lichter studied this phenomenon in patients nearing death. Fourteen shed a final tear at the time of death, and 13 within the last 10 hours of life. That final tear might reflect the sadness of leaving, but it might reflect seeing the face of God or the joy of greeting loved ones on the other side. An experience I have witnessed more than once is that of a dying person fixing their eyes on something beyond us in the room.
