Where Is The Angel?

By Mary Jane Hurley Brant

Where is the Angel?
I’ve searched
for her.

She has gone.

For how long
will she be gone?



Yes, forever.
And, also, that best part of
her and him.

Who is he?

The angel’s father, who was her hero.

Oh.  And what about the mother?

She’s a different woman now.
She seeks change;
wants to explore.

Will they both soldier on?
Serve heaven’s commands?
Life’s spiritual demands?

Yes.  They march forward
with precious tenderness
patience, pain and remembrance;
Grief’s their companion now.

Do you believe they’ll manage together
this monumental,
grief forever?

Yes, forever and ever and ever.

A little bit about me: Professionally, I am a practicing Human Relations Counselor, a Certified Group Psychotherapist and a Clinical Member of The American Group Psychotherapy Association.  I’ve been practicing as a depth psychotherapist for 37 years meaning I believe in the power of the unconscious to offer us some truths and to help set us free emotionally. 

I have specialized in grief and loss and serious illness – particularly after the death of my precious daughter, Katie, to a brain tumor. My work is with individuals, couples and religious communities.  I run groups on specific topics.  In March, 2009, I founded and have facilitated a free-of-charge group for bereaved mothers who have lost children. It’s called “Mothers Finding Meaning Again.” There is more information about these courageous women on this site under groups.
