Dear Sweet Angel - Poem by Tessa Gaoses

Dear Sweet Angel,
I am writing to ask you how you are. Is heaven good? It must be a peaceful place. Did the other Angels welcome you well?

Tell me, are you happy to have crossed over to the other side. They say it’s a place where there is no pain or sorrow, a place where sickness is foreign. There is only love, peace and happiness and lots of singing. I know you love to sing, so you really must love it there.

Although you must be happy up there, accepting that you are not with us anymore is the hardest thing to do. For we thought that we would have more time with you, more time to do things we earthlings do. More time to appreciate your uniqueness in our lives. For no one is like you and no one can fill the void you left.

Forgive us for our shortcomings and mistakes. Forgive us if we ever made you feel left out or didn’t include you in anyway. For you are always going to be the missing piece in our lives, for we will never be able to make decisions without thinking about what should have been your role in them.

Plead to God for us if we are offending him in our grief for you. He has to understand that he took you too young, when we had so many hopes and dreams for you. You were only 20 after all. Although he says that his ways are not ours and in time we trust that the reason will be clearer for having taken you from us so selfishly without even having said goodbye, we still find it hard to accept losing you.

So sweet angel help us find comfort and solace in the face of sole deep grief. Help us understand that you are not with us in a physical form but must be in a spiritual form, trying to reach out and comfort us.

For though you are not with us anymore, we love you and we will always miss you for all the days of our lives. So rest in peace and prepare a place in heaven for us for when we will be reunited again. Because one thing is for certain, we will meet again someday in that happy and peaceful place called heaven; where angels dwell, that my sweet angel is my promise to you.
