She was always so bright
She was always so pure
She was an angel, so what did you do?

She started fading, giving a light much more dim
I saw her crying, her eyes red and tear stained
She was an angel, so what did I do?

She started to change into something sad and destroyed
She began to fall, into a never-ending darkness
This angel was falling too fast, and so hard
She was an angel, but what could I do?

This angel was stripped of her wings and her light
Did we take it from her?  Did we stop this angel's flight?
I want her to know that I'm sorry, and that I do miss her too

She was always so bright, so pure.....
She was an angel, so what did WE do?

Bunny,
   I loved your poem!  I was wondering what inspired you to write it?  Very unique, to say the least.

Hi bunny,

Thanks for responding to my poem. I think your poem raises a valuable question: to what extent are we responsible for another's downfall? It's so easy to see someone do something that we know is self-destructive and yet turn our heads and say or do nothing. Maybe by taking your poem to heart we can do better in such a circumstance. Keep writing!

Mark
