The boy said to his guardian angel,
Why was I born?
And the angel replied fear not little one
you have great courage and innocence
You ask to many questions
If you hide beneath the shadow of my wings
you will find a place where your heart is safe
And then the boy replied thank you, now may I have some more for my cup is empty ..
