Angels Of The Living - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

I'm lying at the bottom
of the ocean devoid of breath
just waiting for death

Sea serpents and mutants all around me
watching and waiting
ready to feed off what's left

I see my spirit and soul
rise above me
my eyes are closing
to nothing but darkness

Then a bright light comes
and shatters the darkness
an angel appears and says
the ocean is not your resting place
your life is to be lived
now you rise and you rise
to the sound of the living


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Never take life for granted.

    I can truly say Amen to this great write Dave. An Angel of light appeared
    and rescued a soul from the pits of Hell. All kinds of spirits was waiting to
    take hold. This leads me to invite you to read my poem An Angel Just for Me.

    Nice poem about hope, and guidance. Very eerie about lying on the ocean floor and perceiving all of this, without breath. (Report) Reply

    Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it.
