This blog is sad

August 17th, 2006

Angela once left a comment on my blog.

I was asked, once, to help out as a hospice volunteer. I could not say yes as I am emotionally not strong enough to share the pain and loss. This is why I opted to work with latchkey kids.

Back to Angela, curious as to who she was I visited her blog. I left devastated as it was chronicling the final days of a lively, funny and oh-too-young girl.

But I did visit once in a while to see how she was.

Work came, stayed, made a mess and left. And suddenly today, I went in to find this. One cannot help but think of the song left on the blog of another dear friend.

Alas Angela, for we hardly knew thee.

In the aeroplane over the sea

…And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be, in the arms of all I’m keeping here with me

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
And when we meet on a cloud
I’ll be laughing out loud
I’ll be laughing with everyone I see
Can’t believe how strange it is to be anything at all
