An Angel Once - Poem by Maia Padua

An angel once
With eyes that gaze with love
Lips that speaks of goodness
Whose words and acts are blessed
Her voice as melodious as cherubs singing
In every heart, lightly caressing.

Days passed, from dawn until dusk
Spending time beside the silent water
Seeing her reflections, was so clear
Her halo, flickering, slowly fading
Her mind's seeking, soul's reflecting.

Seeking for guidance from heaven above
She took a chance to gaze at the sky
Walking away from neon lights
Turning away from tempting world and lies
She ended her dreams of earthly desires
To yield back her halo, she cries.

Unnoticed, one day she woke up
A light filled the room, glistening
Like fireflies that are playing, flickering
Running down to that silent water, she goes
Watching her reflection, she danced merrily
Above her head, her halo glistened steadily.
