The Night The Angels Came - Poem by Matthew Holloway

the angels came to call my name
they urged me to follow
I would not yield, take a further step
not I, death shall wait until tomorrow
the day never to come
I saw stars in their eyes
light beyond the eternal dark of night
my strength persisted, resistance
every nerve and sinew shook
still the angels called
a song to seduce so sweetly
voices hung upon the air
embracing the soul, the heart
what wild tempest of thought
no steadfast I should stand
beside all such beautiful memories
I recall their sound
how may name resonated in bells
for me they shall not toll
the angels called my name
I refused to follow
