This article is about a spiritual experience I had while embracing my feelings of sadness.
Message From An Angel
by Shron Rose
There was a time in my life, when I'd just gone through a chain of devastating losses, which lead me to the deepest, most excruciatingly painful release I've ever experienced. I literally cried for days! So much emotional pain surfaced that it terrified me! The pain came racing to the surface, like an unstoppable locomotive.
On the second day of almost steady crying, I tried to shut it off. I tried to stop the gut wrenching flow of tears. But, I couldn't! I felt completely engulfed by it. It consumed every fiber of my being.
When I'd reached a point where I could hardly see through my swollen eye lids and knelt on the floor gasping for breath, gripping my aching stomach and chest, I screamed and prayed for God to stop the pain. Right at that point, when I felt like I absolutely couldn't handle anymore, an incredibly Loving, presence came to hold me.
I felt my body being cradled in the arms of, what seemed like, an Angel. It felt like the Love in my Home beyond this earth, had come down to embrace me.
I suddenly felt comforted, and felt safe enough to open my heart and surrender, even more deeply, to the releasing of my pain. I cried and cried until my exhausted body laid sleeping, in the arms of this Angel. When I woke, I wrote the following song about the message I got from this Angel.

I am the sadness seizing your heart,
That will in time, with healing, depart.
I am the tear caressing your cheek.
I am your strength. I am not weak.
I am the pressure in your chest,
Learning to fly, leaving the nest.
I am the memory of years gone by.
I am the breath that leaves with a sigh.
I am the child within your being
I am all knowing. I am all seeing
I am the voice echoing in your head.
You have not lost me. I am not dead.
I am the joy, you must believe.
I am the Love you need receive.
I am the peace you must let in.
I am the Light knocking again.
I will not leave you, will not say good-by.
I've come to hold you…. while you cry.
