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