Message From An Angel
by The Poetess (SRP)
During a time when I was struggling through several devastating losses, I entered into the most painful emotional release I've ever had. But, though this was one of my most painful times, it also led me into one of the most comforting spiritual experiences I've ever had.
As I curled my body up on a floor during my third day of almost constant crying, my stomach convulsed and my voice hoarsely moaned in pain. I tried to stop the endless flow of tears, but couldn't, no matter how hard I tried! I'd gone beyond the point of return. My eyes were almost too swollen to see out of. My chest and stomach deeply ached. And I'd not been able to eat for days. This scared me! I understood the healing powers of letting myself deeply cry, in order to release my pain. I'd done a lot of this sort of work. But this time, it went further than ever before. It completely overwhelmed me.
I prayed for help. I begged The Higher Powers to stop the pain - to help me pull myself out of it. I felt as if I’d fallen over the edge of a cliff into an endless abyss. I feared that I was never going to make it out of the well of pain I’d leapt into.
But, right at the point, when I knew that I absolutely could not take anymore, I felt a presence embracing me. (It’s impossible to fully describe this.) I felt as if I were being cradled in the arms of Love itself.
This feeling was so powerful and so comforting that my tears of sadness became tears of deep gratitude; gratitude that I was not as alone as I'd thought - that there was someone here for me. I'd needed to know this. I'd needed to know this more than these words can imagine.
With Love surrounding me, I was able to release even more of my pain. I continued crying until I peacefully slept in the arms of this ‘Angel’. And when I woke, I wrote the song, “Message from an Angel.”
Message from an 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 will not leave you. . .will not say bye.
I've come to hold you while you cry.
