The soul and the body - two separate beings?

Some thoughts that I've have been knocking around: as Socrates made the very logical point that things that originate from our soul, goodness, virtue, wisdom, cannot be seen, is it not possible that this thing, the soul, exists but cannot be seen? Taking it a bit further, could our "soul" be a being that each body possesses, like (excuse the crude comparison, I do not mean it as an insult) a parasite and our bodies the hosts? Through doing good we "feed" this soul and it grows. By ignoring the quiet call of the soul to do good we starve this being and it shrivels and withers? Going even further, as a fruit ripens and falls off the vine, could our soul ripen to the point that it won't ripen anymore and that is the moment that we are "plucked from the vine"? This thought, as outlandish as it sounds, gives me solace when I think of people who died "before their time". Perhaps they died exactly when they were at their ripest, and had they lived longer, would have lost their sweet ripeness?
