Listening to every heart
An Angelís Chance
[In response to LngJhnAgís ďAngelsĒ]
A friend came to me the other day,
at his words my heart broke for him.
So for this man, I wrote these words
for Iíd like to see him try love again.
To step softly around a broken heart
takes some work, as 'tis an art
to mend the broken, repair the wound
but pray dear friend, you'll mend soon.
Divorce I learned is a little death
swiftly come, takes one's breath;
but star-crossed lovers, different, yes
for two then joined in love's caress.
Since for them by ring they were not bound
one gets what one gives, is what I've found;
but a ring doesn't always mean forever in life,
when man meets woman, becomes husband and wife.
Sometimes it is in one's soul,
to grow as ďoneĒ becomes the goal,
and my friend, 'tis for you to again cope;
that you'll learn to love again,
and be a real angel's hope.
