*** Dedicated to Johnathan McFee***

The wings that I have sit freely on my shoulders

As the wind flows through me, slowly getting colder

How much more do I have to go through, before I can carry on?

At a time in my life, so much pain and agony

When I used to be so strong

A smile, a laugh, that I once had, now over

Shadowed by anger good and bad

The tears that fall swiftly down my cheeks

Into my mouth to swallow, again to keep

The touch of an innocent childs' hands

Noone was really there, so they don't really understand

They can look at me and say the things they want to

However of course, what they say, may not be true

What can I live for? If I feel dead inside?

What is it suppose to mean? Is it all a lie?

The wings of the angels fallen from heaven

Isn't that ironic for the amount of sins to be seven?

To take my breath and the pain I feel inside

The dark water of the innocence spilt, never to recover

The souls from underneath the ground

Flowing through each other

A cry for help that noone hears

A whisper through the trees "have no fear"

To run through the night, cold and alone

To reach for the warmth, to finally feel at home

The faces you see, only in the night

Its the only time when they come to life

To protect you and understand what you're going through

Your not alone for the wings that carry you

To be lifted up and feel rising above the fallen

To have your own voice to be heard

Above the screaming

Finally to have someone, somewhere to believe in

The wings to make you inferior to the rest

Hope of another life to sustain your best

The loss of a loved one, to be given to another

You never forget them, your love for your brother

For he has the wings to be the strongest

Your love for each other will always last the longest

The wings that he carries, watching over you

The people your life has, the things you go through

You never forget him and he'll never forget you

Always know deeply inside, that he's always loved you

The wings he has, and so will you one day

To be reunited together again, someday

He'll always be there and he knows you care

The love for one another, so beautiful and strong

His wings, he watches over you, to stay for so long

*My best friend Joshua Eric John McFee's brother* I care about him so much therefore he is to be in my heart forever, "where the faces of angels will watch over you, his wings will be there through all that you go through" KC

This was beautiful. Very tender.


Nothing is more painful than realizing he meant everything to you, but you meant nothing to him. (Unknown)

Wow!!! This one touched my heart in serious ways. Even brought the itch of a tear to my eye at one point.

Keep writing!


Have you ever heard that "No shirt, No shoes" rule? My question is...Why doesn't that rule include pants?
