The Angel Comes

Just close your eyes, my tired one,
Our peaceful journey has begun.

Take hold my hand, and feathered wing,
Lift up your heart to sweetly sing,
Beyond the pain that holds you here,
I'll guide your soul ... for heaven's near.

Fear not, the brilliant lights you see,
'Tis heaven's trail, we rise to meet.
Let calm and peace surround your heart,
For never do we truly part.

You leave behind on earthly plain,
Your memories, for they remain
Deep in the heart of those you love,
A treasured gift from God above.

The love and care you've given all,
Will stay with them, for evermore;
Within their hearts, you'll always stay,
In prayer, one tender thought away.

While in their time of deep despair,
We'll travel 'mongst them unaware;
Your presence felt by those will bring,
A whispered touch, from new-sprung wings.

For times they wish you to be near,
They'll feel your warmth, your love, your care;
A spark, in memory you'll ignite,
To drift them off to sleep at night.

A quiet touch, a lightened heart,
Is how they'll feel your love impart;
Beyond the bounds of heaven's door,
With angels as you drift and soar.

So gentle one, your time is here,
I've come to take away your fear;
This earthly body cannot mend ...
Your suffering, is at an end.

So take my hand, and follow me,
To rest in peaceful harmony,
Come soar with me above the clouds,
To heaven's gate, where love abounds.

Take comfort now, we've reached the light ...
Your soul released, to angel's flight.

Oh Kit this was simply beautiful, and I wish you had posted it this morning, I could have read it to someone who loves poetry and needed to hear just this.  However, I have printed it and when I stop crying I shall read it out loud and pray that she hears it.  Thank you for this beautiful poem, I really needed to see this today.

If I made you smile today then I did my job!

I liked it then....I love it now.  Why?  Possibly because so many of the poets here have gone a bit beyond, and Forum #7 was about half a lifetime of Passion's "ago"...so many changes, improvements, additions, new members...

but always, always, some fine and exceptional writing.

This of course, being one of them that head the list.

Thank you for this, my friend.

This was beautiful Kit.  I read it to my husband this morning.  I am at the beginning of this with him.  He has cancer and I know that it won't be too long before his angel comes and calls him home.  So thank you for sharing this.  It was truly beautiful

A quiet touch, a lightened heart,
Is how they'll feel your love impart;
Beyond the bounds of heaven's door,
With angels as you drift and soar.

So gentle one, your time is here,
I've come to take away your fear;
This earthly body cannot mend ...
Your suffering, is at an end.

So take my hand, and follow me,
To rest in peaceful harmony,
Come soar with me above the clouds,
To heaven's gate, where love abounds.
======================================


quiet comfort kissed with rhyme divine...
simply beautiful Kit..in its level of inspire and its intend...
once again...you are a smile waiting to happen.

Simply beautiful Kate. It reminded me of my own dear father, I pray he has an angel such as this with him.  Thank you.
