An Angel With A Broken Wing Poem by David Harris

An Angel With A Broken Wing

Rating: 5.0


You flew too high for any mortal,
when love first struck you,
but then one-day love didn’t sing,
and you ended up, an angel with a broken wing.

Your tears flow with every hour;
your cries are filled with pain.
You played at the game of love and lost;
now you’re an angel with a broken wing.

Like almost everything in loves game,
you will find that with time,
life can be wonderful again,
and mend an angel with a broken wing.

Thank you for this David, for many times I have been going through the motions with a broken wing or two, , , just won't say I'm an angel, for I am not..I will save this and have it for those often broken wing days.~~~~~~~~love, marci.xo

I am greatly touched by your choice of words. For now, I am an angel with a broken wing I guess...waiting for the time or waiting for someone to mend my broken wing. Thanks for the last stanza...it offers me hope: -)
