A young man's beloved wife has died in childbirth. For
many nights he cries; sometimes he rages; sometimes he
is terrified that death can strike him too at any time.
Eventually, he is too exhausted and falls asleep.
He dreams, and in his dream he stands by side of the bed
once more, holding his wife's hand as she lies dying.
But here, he sees that as she draws her last breath,
from her life an angel is born, a beautiful being of
pure white light that rises from her lifeless body. It
comes to him, enfolds him in its love and sings to him
of beauty and eternity and of many lives, many loves.
When he awakes in the morning, his world is absolutely
changed and he too has been re-born.
