Angels Promise (The Masterpiece {short-Story} Of Love) - Poem by Darlene Belcher

He wakes up everyday, the sun comes up and the moon fades away.
To him this is just another day, no time to talk, no time to play.
He lives in a small little house, wanting to love and have a spouse.
Instead he just sits away, praying for that marvelous day.

He went to the beach one Monday afternoon..
And walked were he knows, no one ever goes.
But then, he saw her.. siting amoungst the rocks; looking out to the sea.
She looked up and gave a smile, generously inclinded, yet stoping at first to ponder his thoughts upon inwhich he stared.
Where did this woman come from? Continuing his walk forward.
Once he was close enough he reached out to her and she surprisingly took his hands.
He tried to help her down, but she stopped him and smiled at his look.
Skimmering her he noticed she was wearing a gown of scales that covered her legs and feet.
The dress shimmered in the sunset.
The scarlet reds and dandelion yellows danced upon her to the sea.
Her smile was gentle, her beauty was fierce, he wanted to have her and for her to always be his.
She looked up, still smiling, and placed a hand on his cheek, the sensational feeling he wished to always meet.
'i am sorry but i must leave, the tides come in and call to me. To this night i will not forget so please dont worry- please dont fret. When the sunset rises and the seagulls sing, i will come back from the beach and then you, shall forever have me.'
As he walked home, he turned for a kiss, just for once, a moment of bliss.
And as he got home he went straight to bed, and thoughts of her, filled his head.
He dreamed a dream the was of sunsets rising and hearing the seagulls sing; the oceans fresh breeze coming from the sea.
As he looked around he saw her again, but instead of wearing a long flowing gown of scales of the sea, she wore a white dress.

Just then he awoken, and there she was,
Sleeping in his arms,
The angel of his life,
His love.
Her angel promise was to him.
