Suddenly - Poem by Andrew Yip

Suddenly, she came.
Life’s no longer the same.
There she stood - an angel’s child;
My heart began beating, throbbing wild.

Suddenly, we were standing near,
Gently touching, sharing glances that endear.
A moment later, we suddenly kissed.
I knew then this was the love I’ve missed.

Alone with her on a hill,
Alone with the clouds in those high places still.
I remember the sweet songs of love we share'd.
She sang like the spirit of Spring in the daybreak air.

Suddenly over the hills she climbed high,
Climbing higher and higher to touch the sky.
But suddenly she was falling; then tears filled my eyes.
My prayers echoed through the skies.

I saw her – an angel with broken wings descending –
Her head and body turning and bending.
God is merciful; she never hit the ground,
As she held on to some branches without a sound.

I bent over and held her close.
Suddenly, she wrapped her arms around me,
Wrapped them right round me, as time froze.
She then smiled - an angelic smile I could see.
