I have two favorite poems 1) "Metamorphosis"  
2) "And The Angels Cried,"  but since I posted  Metamorphosis a few weeks a ago, I'll post "And The Angels cried" as my favorite, for sentimental reasons.  I wrote it last Christmas for My Mom and of course she cried and cried.     Also, the months March and September are used in my poem because March is my Mom's birthday and September is mine.


~AND THE ANGELS CRIED~

And the angels cried
once upon a March morn,
and the angels rejoiced
for, a miracle was born

The angels danced merrily all night,
and their tears of joy flowed 'til the early morn,
and so, God smiled with much delight,
the day my angel was born

With care, God dressed the meadows in golden wheat
and adorned the fields in celebration with yellow corn,
for, fruit trees were never quite so sweet,
as when my angel was born

And, I was an angel
watching from above,
upon the wind,
and among the clouds in the starlit night,
and with just the first glance,
fell in love with the most breathtaking sight

And, asked of God
one favour, forevermore,
to trade in my wings of gold,
to be your child,
in your arms to hold

For, I had seen the seven wonders of the world,
and gazed at many a beautiful sunset upon the ocean blue,
for, I had searched the entire world over,
but, nothing compared to the loveliness of you

And, an angel cried,
as she held me tight,
in her perfect arms,
once upon a September night,
when I was born

And, my tears of wonder flowed down my newborn cheeks,
in sweet surpise,
and the angel held my little finger,
as I looked up into her lovely hazel eyes

For, I have seen the seven wonders of the world,
but, nothing as captivating as my angel

And, so, the angels cried

Melissa~
Beautiful, hon.
One can easily see why it would bring
tears of joy to a mom's eyes.
Lovely thoughts.

Melissa,
this is so lovely and inspiring to read.
thank you for sharing it with us for the challenge.
Im sure your mother did cry tears of pride.
take care, jm

 I think I could need - this in my life
I think I'm just scared - that I know too much
I can't relate and that's a problem
I'm feeling ...
If you're gone - maybe it's time to go home
There's an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If you're gone - baby you need to come home
cuz there's a little bit of something me...
In everything in you.

Melissa, that was a wonderful tribute to your mother, a beautiful poem,  

With care, God dressed the meadows in golden wheat
and adorned the fields in celebration with yellow corn,
for, fruit trees were never quite so sweet,
as when my angel was born

For, I had seen the seven wonders of the world,
and gazed at many a beautiful sunset upon the ocean blue,
for, I had searched the entire world over,
but, nothing compared to the loveliness of you

wonderful.

How very sweet! I can see why it touched your mom so--it was beautiful.

 And this I say to you: why? Why? Just tell me why, so I can understand. Why?
