When Angels Cried!

Translated from the original Arabic version. It was written long time ago. Please don’t wish me to get better. Thank you πŸ™‚


Sometimes all we can do is cry, when we see the deep sadness of our loved ones and the extent of our inability…
When we are incapable to even pray…to even get close… We are incapable to carry their pain, to ease their sorrows … We cry!
This is what our loved ones do before our grief and pain
Whether they are with us or in the other world … Angels that protect us and watch over us!
I believe that death is never the end; it is the beginning of a better life, of an eternal life in the neighborhood of God!

When Angels Cried

That day the winter was harsh!
The cold penetrates my veins until I had a bluish tinge!
The sky was darkened and the horizon was blackened
I looked … I couldn’t find a mere light
I hate darkness!
My heart has darkened, my chest has tightened, and my enthusiasm, my laughs and my humor were all melted!
There is no sign of life around, neither love nor colors

I felt a deep sadness that I had never experienced before!
A melancholy that changed my features, choked my heart, blooded my eyes!
A melancholy that has enveloped me with a black halo that scared the angels around me!

They tried to approach and they were hit by a wall of gloom!
They tried to spread the light but it was suffocated before it was even released!
They tried to give me their hands but they were hit by the arrows of despair and surrender!

The angels saw me extinguishing slowly…
The angels cried around me
Their tears pierced deep down my soul
They moistened my heart with purity and hope
They removed the plucks of sadness and despair
They sent a light that broke my fears

The angels cried from the depth of my sorrow
And when they cried, they revived me!

Thank you for reading! Your thoughts are always welcome and appreciated πŸ™‚

  1. Good afternoon, even if it’s sounds sad, i found it well and beautifully written, darkness needed, other wise we wont appreciate the light❀️

    1. Thank you dear Ilona for reading and the valuable interaction 😊
      Yes indeed, darkness is needed to appreciate light and I so appreciate it ❀️

  2. This is so lovely, Huguette! I love the photos you added to enhance the post. Well done. I enjoyed this very much. I’ve often thought that we can’t know happiness without sadness and that the same goes for light and dark. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for reading and for the lovely comment! It’s appreciated
      Glad you loved the pictures, I always imagine photos when reading or writing so glad some people like that 😊
      Oh certainly darkness and light same as happiness and sadness, we can’t appreciate the one without the other πŸ‘ especially if we could survive the deep darkness
      Have a great day

  3. I agree Huguette! I think there’s no feeling worst than seeing person you love the most in so much pain and your inability to do anything. That feeling helplessness is just heart breaking. But as the poem shows, no matter how hard time is and how dark the world seems, there’s always hope. And that hope will break through the clouds of darkness and bring you the light you have been waiting for. 😊
    Very happy to read something straight from your heart after such a long time. I was about to say you that I love reading those awards post but please write something from your heart nowπŸ˜… I guess, you read my mind😊

    Love Always πŸ’–

    1. Thank you Swastik 😊 well I know you love to read something from the heart but most of my deep Arabic writings are so sad because this is how I felt for many years, always the sadness and anger triggered me to write..,and there wasn’t lot of joy to be honest 😊
      This one is a bit surreal, I wrote it in certain circumstances and didn’t want people to even understand what I meant…
      I’m glad you loved it and promise you will bring some from the heart, hopefully a bit joyful 😊
      Much of love and hope you’re having sweet dreams ❀️

  4. That was such a melancholy piece thankfully with some redemption at the end. Even though it came from a place of deep sorrow πŸ˜ͺ
    I would’ve thought that maybe because it was translated from your native tongue it might have lost something in the process. It certainly doesn’t appear that way. It really conveys a deep sadness.
    ‘A black halo that scared the angels’. Such a phrase or thought I have never heard before. Something so dark beings of light are afraid. Seriously powerful stuff.
    Well I’m glad this was written a long time ago. Hopefully you’ll never have to experience what inspired you to write that again.
    Much love to you Huguette ❀

    1. Hey Chris hope your day was good 😊
      Redemption indeed, I’m still alive
      I used google translate first then I corrected it once and twice so I don’t compromise the meaning and I believe it was good, of course I consider the Arabic great
      Glad you find it good enough translated, appreciate that 😊
      Well it was the feeling that day, the entire piece is surreal of course but the feeling is real!
      I hope that too Chris! Hope I will write some joyful things..
      Much love to you as well ❀️

      1. How on earth are you still awake?! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        I was just starting to get through the comments. Then this pops up haha
        Oh I would well believe the feeling behind it was real. Wouldn’t have been so powerful otherwise. Glad you worked on it so the translation worked out.
        Auch I’m sure there’s joyful things to come and write about as well.
        Much love to you…And get some sleep! Or at least have a long lie in in the morning ❀

      2. You still didn’t reach the comment that says why I’m still awake πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ going to sleep now so take your time with comments
        Much love to you and good night ❀️

      3. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Jumping from one comment to the next. I’ve messed with the timeline. You’d think the Flash would’ve taught me all about how bad that is πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Haha Night night Huguette. Sleep well and much love ❀

      4. Hahha Run Chris Run πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Please mess with the timeline probably will discover some other earths 😁 this one sucks!
        Have a great day ahead 😊

      5. Haha Some new earths would be good.
        That said, this one doesn’t completely suck 😁
        Although if you asked me last year I would have said it does nothing but suck.
        Hope you have a great day too 😊

      6. Well a positive approach is always good 😌😌 glad to know you still have faith in humanity
        Lazy day but it’s always great to eat and sleep
        Best thing about vacation 😊

      7. Well, not humanity in general. And I do find it hard to trust people. But I still know there’s good people out there. People worth knowing.
        Ah it’s good to have a lazy day when you can. Got some time to myself today. Just finished answering all your sunshine blogger questions actually. Just got to put the rest of it together.
        Glad you’re enjoying a nice relaxing vacation 😊

      8. Yes same here, of course there’s a lot of good people out there and hope you will meet many 😊
        Looking forward to reading this post πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
        Glad you could have some lazy time
        I can see your comments popping hahah πŸ˜‚

      9. Ah sure I’m already meeting good people 😊
        Well that’s if I get back to it. My lazy time is done. Just busy making a mess of dinner because I keep distracting myself hahaha
        Still haven’t got this multitasking thing completely sorted yet πŸ˜‚

      10. Hahahaa the dinner Chris the dinner πŸ˜‚
        Oh yes there’s a lot to do really that sometimes one life time is not enough at all 😊
        Multitasking course number 1: you should set up priorities πŸ€“

      11. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I could just imagine you shouting that πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Damn right it’s not. Clones I tell you…Clones haha
        Well you see I thought I had my priorities in order. My boy…then the blog. Everything else can go to shit πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      12. Haha me too. Wouldn’t fancy having to make another…then probably burning that too πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Glad you like my priorities. I guess yours must be: blog, blog, blog, sleep, blog, blog, working whilst blogging, blog, blog, sleep, dream about blogging, blog. hahahaπŸ˜‚

      13. Hahahahah I liked my priorities πŸ˜‚
        Well now yes I guess it’s exactly the case πŸ˜‚
        You’re assuming I have no life πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”
        A joke certainly πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Now this list is great, let’s see how much I’ll maintain it 😊

      14. What are talking about Huguette?! Have no life. Blogging is life! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Haha you’re definitely doing a lot better than me.

      15. Oh Chris now I feel better hahah
        Blogging is life indeed 😊😊
        Each one is unique Chris don’t forget that πŸ€“

      16. Good morning Chris and hope you’re having a good « Good FridayΒ Β» couldn’t help but saying it haha😁

      17. Hahaha Good morning to you too Huguette.
        Always good to start the day with a laugh no matter how ‘good’ the joke is πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        It’s a lovely morning here already. Sun shining. Hope it’s the same for you. 😊

      18. 😁😁 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ here it’s like a December day literally ! Thunder and lightning and lot of rain hahha
        I guess wordpress started the comments game again, I just replied twice to the comment of the newspapers and they vanished , how cool is that πŸ™„

      19. Oh no hahaha That’s sounds awful. Although I love lightning storms…when I’m inside.
        Well we’re having our hottest day yet. Guess God loves the Irish today πŸ˜‚
        That’s definitely not cool. Between having to write the comment again and then feeling you’re being ignored. They really need to sort that out.
        I see another comment. Back in a moment haha

      20. Yes! But the people celebrating today will say that our celebration is the rightful one because it must rain in the Good Friday 😳😳 πŸ˜‚ are you watching fellow orthodox ??happening literally 😁
        God loves the Irish hahah
        Well in case the comment didn’t go through I said that 3 newspapers are cool and I’m sure you reaches many people but you don’t know that…even if you reached one, it’s good
        Imagine if you never started to write at all ? How would you feel? πŸ€”πŸ€”
        Leaving you to think πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      21. Haha I didn’t know it must rain on Good Friday. They’ll be throwing a real party today then if there’s thunder and lightning πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Ah no. That comment didn’t make it. Maybe WordPress has a daily limit for comments and thinks you’re over yours πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚ Just waiting for mine to start failing also 😁
        Now that is something to think about πŸ€” Especially as its taken over my life haha
        And to think of the people I would never had met…and all that love and respect I would have missed. Going to stop thinking about that. It’ll just make me sad πŸ™ I’m thanking the stars I do πŸ™πŸ’«
        Not going to sign off yet. Going to another comment hahaha

      22. Oh it will be some party πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Well I exceeded my limit long time ago, wordpress will kick me out certainly 😁
        See Chris??? Now you’re grateful 😊😊 just know you’re doing a great job πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
        Let’s check other comments now haha

      23. Haha there would be war if WordPress kicked you out.
        Oh I am grateful 😊 And thanks for the encouragement. Oh I signed up for the art of blogging guy’s one on one Skype thing. Got a brief report about my blog from him. I’ll do a post on it after we do the Skype call next week. Interesting to say the least haha
        Got side tracked by fatherly duties there and someone just liked a conversation we had.

      24. Those stupid comments likers! They really annoy me big time! There are a lot of stalkers and sick people out there I guess…will find a way anyway
        That’s good! Looking forward to this informative post 😊
        War hahahaπŸ˜‚thank you Chris but no more wars please πŸ˜‚

      25. It’s unreal. Like what’s the point? I had a weird one the other day. Got a new follower the other day. Checked them out. It said their account was created 4hrs before. They followed me right away. Didn’t like anything. Made one post an hour after creation that just said ‘I love Allah’. And that’s it. I showed my tech friend. Visited their blog and there was a fake Facebook account on it. Very strange.
        Oh I’m sure you’ve had enough of those for 100 lifetimes πŸ˜ͺ

      26. People are weird! No point they want to annoy you especially when their site is fake! Or they want to comment some stupid comments like one account that keep commenting on some blog: I love you, I wanna marry you and much more πŸ˜‘πŸ˜πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’i would have blocked him at the I πŸ˜‚
        The good thing that in less than a second you can move the comment to spam,the know that so they bother you in other way

      27. There are some strange ones. Makes me wonder what they’re like in real life πŸ€”
        Blocked at the ‘I’ hahaha
        Ah the curse of a pretty woman. Where’s my marriage proposals? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Guess I’m going to have to change my gravatar to some pic of a male model πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Oh spam. I think I know where that is πŸ˜‚

      28. Oh no don’t get me wrong I’m very modest and I respect all people but spamming ? Someone with fake profile and wants to marry you geez this is disgusting!
        I always rant about « mutualΒ Β» it should be mutual that’s it
        You’re really throwing some serious accusations here Chris 😌 not a shallow person but I believe that we don’t get to choose that’s it 😊
        Don’t change anything now where’s the self confidence manπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ must go and check your gravatar hahah

      29. Auch I know what you mean. It’s all very ridiculous and as you said before they’re basing that on what. A blurry picture.
        Totally agree with the mutual thing and I certainly didn’t mean to throw any accusations. It’s obvious you’re not shallow. I could tell that a mile away.
        I just meant if your wee pic is enough to get proposals there must be something wrong with mine cause I’ve never got any. Give it time I suppose πŸ˜‚
        Haha check away

      30. πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ give it time indeed, you’ll be the most popular man on WordPress probably 😁

        Oh I didn’t get proposals because I cut people immediately when they cross some line…

        But to be honest since you mentioned The blurry picture, I was telling some fellow blogger the same thing and he told me you will be surprised that it’s enough to have boobs! Oh yes I was surprised, thought this community is different but not everyone here is different as I thought …he told me if he was a woman and posted sexy photos he’ll have thousands of followers so his words gave me an idea that even here, people are all the same! πŸ˜‚ If you know what I mean

      31. Oh yes. I can see that future πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Ha ha Said it before. My son’s word. Savage. Love it!
        ‘Enough to have boobs’. I actually laughed out loud at that. Hahaha Must get myself off to a plastic surgeon πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Well I sort’ve noticed something similar to that at one time. Which is fair enough. But seriously. How desperate are some people. I’ve known my fair share of ‘beautiful’ women. Enough to know it only means anything if there’s substance behind it. A pic tells you nothing.

      32. Go and book for your plastic surgery now hahahπŸ˜‚
        People are desperate, really desperate and this is extremely sad! You are wise but not many are believe me
        Savage πŸ˜‚ your boy is cool
        Hope the day went smoothly 😊

      33. Haha Am on the phone to them already. Debating what cup size to go for? Wondering if a bigger one will get me more followers πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Nothing reeks more than desperation haha
        Oh he is. I love hearing the lingo he uses. He’s forever calling me bro 😁
        Day has went very well thank you. Still trying to get this post finished haha
        Hope you’ve had a lovely day too 😊

      34. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ they say bigger is better πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Bro πŸ˜‚ OMG how cool is that 😊😊
        Heading to your post now, you did it despite the struggle 😊

      35. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ surely there’s a limit! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Yeah, I love it. I’m a father first but a friend when he needs it.
        Will check my spam. Just gotta boot up the pc

      36. Good morning Chris 😊😊 hope you’ll have a good day
        Well the limit is the sky πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ oh I guess it’s not the right place for this quote πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Checking another comment

      37. Good morning to you too Huguette 😊😊 Likewise for a good day. Hope the stormy weather as eased up at least.
        The sky’s the limit πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Would’ve thought it was the ground in this case πŸ˜‚
        Just getting ready to go kick some ass (Ok, practice kicking ass πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)
        I see you did reach your comment limit yesterday. WordPress must have thought you were a bot! Sent your big comment to spam as you thought πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Woke up to a lot of kind words this morning. Ah feeling the love already 😊
        Much love to you dear Huguette ❀

      38. Sorry a bit busy day with my friends here and me breaking all my mother’s kind of glassπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        The ground indeed πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ this is hilarious πŸ˜†
        Wordpress is really testing my patience haha would be such pity if I stopped commenting πŸ™„πŸ™„
        Oh yes kick some asses πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ˜
        Hope your day will be great
        Much love to you ❀️😊

      39. Oh no hahaha On a trail of destruction are we? πŸ˜‚
        No worries. Busy this side as well. Out enjoying the sunshine. We do have other aspects of our lives.
        Yeah, well, gravity and all πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Damn right it would be a pity. You’d be badly missed. For real.
        Oh asses were kicked…mostly mine hahaha
        Day is going well so far. At least nothing’s been broken haha
        Hope you have a great day with your friends πŸ™‚ Can’t let WordPress consume all your free time.
        Much love to you too 😊❀

      40. Hahhaah yes my mother kicked me away from breakable stuff πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        It’s cold here, but better than yesterday surely! Glad your enjoying the sunshine 🌞
        Your ass was kicked πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ oh no problem you’ll get another chance I guess πŸ™„πŸ™„
        The day was great thank you 😊 oh yes sure we all have a life outside here and we must really manage
        Much love to you 😊❀️

      41. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I can understand. Hope it wasn’t anything too valuable.
        Hard to imagine the cold when it’s so nice here. Not very often do we get this. Usually rain is the order of the day. Making the best of it πŸ™‚ That said I got my nominations done πŸ™‚
        Yeah, but it was by the instructor…his day will come πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Happy to hear you’ve had a great day despite the breakages 😁
        Yes, we really must manage. But I want it all haha Just need more hours in the day.
        Much love to you and your friends and family 😊❀

      42. Well my mother taught us long time ago that material things mean nothing, what matters is to stay safe and healthy 😊 well luckily hahah
        Well this rain and stormy weather didn’t happen from many many years here! Usually it’s almost a summer weather stating March! It’s an exception, now I’m writing this and the thunder is growling hahaa
        You must kick your instructor ass, that will be fun hahahaπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Oh of course it was a great day! Don’t you know? I laugh each time something breaks πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I’m crazy I know
        Oh I can see you edited your post! Great! And you kept most of my questions thank you I’m humbled! 😊😊
        Enjoy your evening and much love always ❀
        Checking other comments now😁

      43. Ha ha thought I had no comments left then saw this one 😊
        That ‘luckily’ bit made me laugh. Sensible woman with an outlook hard earned from the sounds of some of your life story.
        Haha oh gees, I think we’ve stolen your weather. I’ll ask the man upstairs to give it back 😁
        Oh I will! He’s one of my friends actually and I give him awful abuse hahaha Can’t get me to shut up πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        So it really was a great day then. If that’s the case get out there and smash some shit up hahaha No wonder your mum doesn’t care.
        Did the edit. And you were right (As usual πŸ™‚). People were very thankful and happy. I love that happiness can be contagious 😊
        Well, they were good questions. Left a few out in case it got a bit too personal. Don’t want to hear about any gangbangs πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Much love always to you too Huguette 😊😊❀

      44. gangbangs πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        so glad the people were happy! Oh yes you’ll certainly be happy as well 😊 (as usual) I’m flattered here, I just state my mind honestly and many don’t take it gracefully tbh, I’m glad you do!
        Glad I made you laugh and thank you for all the kindness and appreciation 😊
        Oh yes you really stolen our weather 😁😁 thunder and lightning still on OMG
        hahah and I thought you’re the victim here! The poor man πŸ˜‚
        Let’s check other comments now

      45. The only people who can’t handle honesty are the ones who don’t get enough of it! They need it the most haha
        Can you imagine if I left that question in. Really Huguette. What kind of answer were you looking for hahaha
        And that kindness and appreciation is all your own doing! Thank yourself 😊
        And you do make me laugh. Matter of fact I haven’t laughed as much while on my phone ever. There’s a constant smirk waiting for what comes next.
        Argghh the notifications. How can you type so fast. I’ve only got 1 finger here πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Right, away to see what other delights lie in store πŸ€—β€

      46. Well honesty saves everybody’s time I guess 😊
        You removed 4 questions so what question you mean? the rejection or been with 2 persons? hahha I expected an honest answer 😁😁
        I’m behind the laptop so God helps you hahahπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      47. Indeed it does.
        Well in the spirit of that. No I’ve never been rejected except for in my youngers years when you just ask people out while socialising. Since then I sort’ve like to be sure before I say anything.
        And 2 people. I gave an honest answer πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        A laptop. That’s like cheating haha no wonder I’m so far behind πŸ˜‚

      48. You asked what I wanted from these answers, you didn’t have to re-answer 😌😌 but no problem hahah
        Cheating?? Bring me the WordPress policies and terms of use πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      49. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Still dodged the other one. It’s a no by the way. Although… hahaha
        I will then. Surely there’s something in there πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      50. Just sending this as I’ve just realised that this was on your really sad Angels Cried post and we were talking about boobs! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  5. quite emotional…I wish angels could swing down to each person physically, hold us in their arms, and comfort us at times, even if for just a few minutes. it would be really comforting…but without all that, still they are alive; numerous unseen battles on our behalf, they survive and feel our pain… GOD forbid, but even if I die, paradise i will gain

    1. Thank you for reading and for the thoughtful comment! I wish that too but I believe there’s a good reason why they don’t so we must trust God’s will
      Appreciate your valuable interaction πŸ™πŸ»

      1. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘your welcome. agreed that there is a reason why they dont, and we are strong enough to use whatever assistance they can give us. thanks

  6. Wow its all kinds of sadness rolled into one. It’s so deep and profound, something I can’t quite grasp yet. Or maybe its because my mood isnt as quite reflective as your piece. But its good none the less:)

    1. Well let’s hope you will not encounter such sadness , believe me it’s harder than even described
      Glad you loved it despite and appreciate your kind interaction 😊

      1. I hope so it. But even if I do encounter it… what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger right? Everything should be taken as a learning experience despite its sadness πŸ˜‚

      2. It is, but in the middle of sadness and depression it’s a bit hard to remember those uplifting words reason why I wished you to never experience that πŸ™‚

      3. Wait wrong emoticon. It should be this one β€”-😊. The two smileys were right beside each other.

  7. You couldn’t have write it better! It is perfect! Words so full of emotions that goes straight to our heart! πŸ’œ The pictures express your words so beautifully! I hope you’ll publish a book one day! πŸ€—πŸ’•

    1. Sorry dear this one went to spam! Appreciate your lovely words! A book? Oh God I don’t even consider myself a writer! this is so heartwarming and encouraging dear πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€— Thank you really for reading and for such support😁😁πŸ₯°
