I Once Found - Poem by Juan Olivarez

I once found heaven,
But I couldn't stay.
My wandering feet,
Led me away.

I once found an angel,
That loved only me.
But I left her in heaven,
Because it couldn't be.

I once found true love,
So true and sweet.
But I couldn't stop,
My wandering feet.

So I took off my shoes,
And threw them away.
And found her again,
And she let me stay.
