My Thoughtful Angel - Poem by Harry Bryant

I was lying in my darkened room,
feeling bad and full of gloom,
thinking about my broken heart,
when you said we had to part,
OH HOW IT HURTS TO BE LONELY,
I was dwelling on my misery
when it suddenly came over me,
a broken heart can feel so bad,
but you cannot lose what you never had,
AND I KNEW IT WAS MEANT FOR YOU ONLY,
right then I began to see the light,
and soon everything would be all right,
that for me to live, love had to die,
for me to laugh, I had to cry,
THEN SUDDENLY MY SENSES WERE REELING,
an angel stood beside my bed,
she reached out a hand and touched my head,
she rubbed my brow, and touched my heart,
she said the lord knew we must part,
HOW DID SHE KNOW WHAT I WAS FEELING,
that I was going to take my life,
with a gun or a rope or a real sharp knife,
with my drunken mind, that was what I had been thinking,
now I had to live, I had to love, and I had to stop drinking,
WITH A PEACEFUL HEART AND A CAREFREE MIND,
I can go on with this kind of life im living,
and instead of always taking, I started into giving,
now I can sing and I can shout,
for I know what love is all about,
THANKS TO AN ANGEL, THOUGHTFUL, SWEET AND KIND.
