An Angel In The Night
In the misty moon -lit night an angel did alight
Peeped me through the window-
With my beloved holding tight.
She was smiling at me with a gleam in her face
Having a glowing ring all around her head.
I jumped up with a maddening joy -
And told her to come near me.
But with a majestic smile in her face
She was nodding her head, didn't move.
I asked her - 'then why my dear..... again to make me cry '!
She told me 'Oh' dear I also do cry and ought to be with thine
But the body what I left, can never get back again.
The angel brought me tonight to see you and say hello-
I was always yours and still I am thine'.
With a pool of tears in my eyes I waved my hands out,
The angel with a lovely smile started to fly -
Clasping you under her wings, saying good bye.
I sprang up in my bed, rubbing my tearing eyes
Still in a hallucination thinking where was I?
In the morning's soothing light - I looked up in the sky
I shouted with a cry 'Hey-I will come very soon -you wait for mine'
A white cloud was passing by -
Slowly away from my sight………
