Blue Angel

[for James]

“It happens like this:

One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else–closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps this person carries within them an angel–one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do is trust in them–even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering–the reason for their presence will become clear in due time.

Though here is a word of warning–you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn’t to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled; the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more.”

      — Lang Leav, Love and Misadventure

  1. What a beautiful sentiment. However, I don’t believe they become a stranger once more after they pass. I understand what you’re saying there, but by measuring the lasting impression and love that person left with us, they will always be with us. Not in the physical sense, of course, but in our hearts.
