When I was just seventeen I had a lovely dream. In my dream I met an angel. She was illuminated before me wearing a dress of white chiffon. Somehow supended in the air though her wings were gone. She told me her name was angelic and as I would soon discover she was totally innocent and sweet and had never entertained a lover. Then she ask me a question I'll never forget. "I've lost my angel wings it seems... have you seen a pair flying around in your dreams?"
Yes..that's exactly the question angelic ask of me I remember every word she softly said to me. This beautiful angel less her wings... This precious angel in my dreams. "None tonight" I heard myself reply. "And tell me dear sweet angel... how could you lose your wings, and why." "Are angel wings sewed on or something?" "I've never heard of an angel losing her wings." Twas then she came closer this angel angelic and whispered in my ear words soft and sweet.
"I've come from very far away to meet you on this very day and if my heart speaks to me true your heart has yearned for me too." These were the sweetest words I'd ever heard. My heart went "WOW" my head went "OW" cause on that very moment something fell right on my head and on my bed. "Oh look...its my angel wings" she said. These were the biggest pair of angel wings that this young man had ever seen. Twas thru my daze I heard angelic say "So sorry sweetie...I'd love to stay... but my angel wings have come to take me away." "See you next time and I don't know exactly when but for now goodbye...and one small kiss to remember me by...until then." And as my angelic flew away like a dove I dreamed on of her sweet love. For when I was seventeen we shared a lovely dream.

Thank you devina and Marge you are special angels. I missed an opportunity...I have been wanting to use the name "Send me an angel" on a poem for about a month..when I finally wrote one about an angel I used the wrong title. I feel more better now. James
beautiful poem James..full of your tender sweet heart and emotions... as always your gentle words touch us. take care, jm
Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules Do you care what is thought by others about you If this day is all that is promised to you Do you live for the present, the future the past... tracy chapman

Thank you Janet and Nan and Claire for your wonderful comments. Nan she definately kept her halo thanks to those angel wings showing up at precisely the right moment. Thank God for angel wings..ha..ha.. James
Thank you Destiny, Martie, Billy, Marina, monique, hoot owl, and butterflies for your warm and beautiful responses...I appreciate it very much. Nan thank you for the beautiful angel..she looks just like angelic. Marina lovely words..perhaps there is a little angel in all of us.
Hoot owl I hope she comes less her wings ready to share her angel dreams. Surely I can trust an angel with my heart no angel wings could keep us apart.
Butterflies I loved reading your response. Heartfelt thanks to everyone. James
Hi, great poem, I am an angelswing, sorry I took your sweet heart away, but all of the best things in life are confined to heaven, far above my head, I am but a lonly messanger with an ironic job . I loved the poem, you know when you found the one, then you just have to prey that they like you .
With poetry as your weapon - express your iner feelings so all may carry your sorrow, united as one .

I understand angelswing...yet my friend Mich was sad when the angel went away...she would have loved for angelic to stay with the lad. So next time please let her stay ...and I will always remember to pray. Thank you Terry I appreciate your wonderful comments. James
