Guardian Angel

I received this email the day after Daniel died, from someone very special. She has been Daniel's guardian angel since we first met, nearly 3 years ago. I find comfort and peace in her loyalty to Daniel and sincere care.

My dearest Alison

No words can describe my heartfelt sorrow for the loss of your beautiful angel Daniel. I really believe that he was an angel sent by God to touch your life with love and joy. I found a beautiful poem which I think is very appropriate and want to share it with you.

I know its too hard to imagine but you need to be strong for your other children and find comfort in the fact that an angel touched your life. I am always only a phone call away so please let me know if you need anything or if I can do anything for you even if you just need to chat.

Warmest wishes with love,C

I carry it in my heart
I am never without it,
Anywhere I ho you go, and whatever is done
By only me is your doing

I fear no fate for you are my fate, my sweet angel
I want no world
For beautiful you are my world
And you are whatever a moon has always meant
And whatever a sun will always sing is you

Here is the deepest secret nobody knows
Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
And the sky of a tree called life
Which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide

And this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart, I carry it in my heart

I say these words for Daniel because that is how it always will be for me and him.
