For Angel. The beautiful little girl that died of a broken heart.
For Nganga and Susan,
We grieve with you. Cry with you. Laugh with you. Pray with you. She is yours by birth and ours collectively by blood. I have no words in which to express this loss. But words aren't required. Our eyes say it all. I found words from others who have experienced such loss. I'll share them with you. For you shall not walk alone on this dark path. We'll walk with you. Physically. Mentally. Spiritually.
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven,
and bring you home again.
If every tear we shed for you,
became a star above,
You'd stroll amongst the angels in heavens garden,
Lit by everlasting love
A thousand words can't bring you back,
We know because we tried.
And neither can a million tears,
We know because we cried.
An Angel in the book of life,
Wrote down our baby's birth
And whispered as she closed the book,
"Too beautiful for earth"
Death leaves a heartache,
No one but God can heal.
Love leaves a memory,
No one on earth can steal.
They say that time in heaven is compared to the blink of an eye on this earth. Sometimes it helps to think of Angel running ahead of you in a field of beautiful flowers and butterflies. So happy and completely caught up in what she is doing that when she looks behind her, You will already be there.
I love you Nganga and Susan.
I love and miss you Angel. Wish you were here.
