I found a file of old poems last night....
I met her in a church, of course
Coz that's where angels stay
I had been wandering, terribly lost,
Just trying to find my way.
She took me in and smiled at me,
So I decided to stay.
Life had led me down rough roads
Like paths of broken glass
All sides were lined by evil ones
Whose hearts were filled with ash.
To meet an angel in church that day
Was more than I could ask.
With porcelain skin, a sunshine smile
And dark Victorian hair,
Her beauty surpassed only by
A warmth that filled the air
From her kind and gentle nature
That soothed everyone there.
Perfection in a human...well!
What a rare and novel find
That renewed my faith completely
In all of human kind.
A person so fine and true as this
Was medicine to my mind.
But perfect person and imperfect world,
Do not go well together
And I discovered my misplaced angel
Had flown through much foul weather.
Her feathers though hidden were tattered and torn
Designed for a world much better.
Her pretty, dusty, diamond eyes
Cut through to the truth of life
Seeing not only the beauty of things
But also the sorrow and strife
All the cruel ironies found in the world
Cut her soft heart like a knife.
The ones who see with great vision
See the world in a different light
Than those who see only the surface
And miss all the shading in life.
But those who see the whole spectrum,
Sometimes see more than they'd like.
Those who feel with great passion
Carry the world on their backs
Labouring quietly alone
While grieving for the love the world lacks.
And those who feel so intensely, sometimes,
Have trouble keeping nerves intact.
It's not easy being an angel
When you can't understand the absurd.
Illogic is all you can count on
Despite what you've probably heard.
But the sun will come up tomorrow
On that, I will give you my word.
So try not to take it so badly
When things don't go as they should.
Don't let dark memories invade you
You know you did all that you could.
Just look for the beauty around you
And focus on all that is good.
