Angels All Around

Touched by a revealing light
I look into the setting sun’s rays
Serenity overwhelms me once more
So many words I want to say
But our conversation goes nowhere
I don’t feel like explaining it anymore
Looking for my angel
Where did she go?
Seems she left
Only for a while
I keep my mind at ease
Knowing he still smiles
Down on my frame
Up in that city of gold
Pain erased from his features forever
Suddenly, my problems vanish
The wind blows
A warm breeze caresses my face
Angels linger around me
Faith is so hard to keep
I sometimes don’t believe
How can I when this is where I’m at?
Then she comes and touches my hand
Though all I feel is resent
I let it go and sit back
We think our loved one’s are gone
But you refuse to look towards the sun
The moon’s glow is surely there smiles
The stars are there souls
Everywhere we look they linger
I know it cuts like a knife
I’ve been in that place
All I could do was stare
Into a space where no one could reach me
That’s where I learned again
That’s where it clicked
The angels around us sing
When the grass sways
And porches swing
When you feel that light of content
You’re angeled loved one is there
Smiling and laughing
Showing that they care
