I was speaking a tale that had been told
That the streets are not paved with gold
And fairy tales donít come true
False is the promise of contentment
The only thing real is resentment
And heavy is the price overdue

It left me wandering a desolate place
Grim was the doom written on my face
I could hide it no more
Comfort was not to be found again
Indifference was starting to win
I could not now ignore

Just then an angel appeared overhead
Spread wide her wings
And awoke a heart left for dead

I began listening to a tale I never heard
She spoke to me, her eyes as words
And fairy tales do come true
The streets are all paved with gold
Ever endless works of wonder to behold
And skies a deeper shade blue

The weight of ages lifted from me
For the first time I could easily breathe
I am somehow something more
Life is sacred and new again
Each second is a long lost friend
I know now what Iím living for

Just then the angel, with wings outspread
Enfolded arms about me
And held close to her heart my weary head

With the lump in my throat from reading this, I thank you my friend. Angels are all around us...here on Earth and surely in heaven. And every once in a while we are blessed enough to have one grace our lives. I had mine...glad you have yours.

another beautiful poem about angels...
most heavenly to read *S*...
stalking you still,
your jm

 ...when you walked into the room, I saw their faces,
you made it feel like time was standing still...and I felt fascination...
then you turned and smiled in my direction...
and my heart...gave me away.

this is so very beautiful,
absolutely angelic.
most enjoyable to read.

 I want to be the face you see when you close your eyes
I want to be the touch you need every single night
I want to be your fantasy
And be your reality
And everything between
I want you to need me,
like I need you.
