The Angel (#314)
February 7, 1994 1:37 am
Once, when I was a child
An angel said to me
Someday there will be love
Be brave and you will see.
Someday has slipped into my life
Silent as sunlight
The angel knew whereof she spoke
She was completely right.
I could not know those years ago
That happiness was mine
That joy would flame into my life
With love approaching divine.
You walked into my solitude
Unexpected and unknown
Introduced by a mutual friend
The angel knew the seed was sown.
You have filled my life with love
Your happiness enfolding me
While holding me gently in your arms
You have also set me free.
The angel smiles a tender smile
She has spoken once again
This friendship lives within your heart
His love for you will never end.
