The Angels Smiled

Dedicated to the soulmate I found when I was 16. Continents apart then and today, I marvel at “how close despite how far” we are…. 

The angels smiled

Oh yes they did

When to their own

Farewell they bid

 

His journey set

A task anew

Reformed and invisible

The wings he knew

 

A tricky job

This cherub had

To find his ward

And make her glad

 

A wailing babe

Soon was born

All past memories

Erased and gone

 

Steady he grew

Years flew by

All seemed perfect

Yet somehow dry

 

Travelling the world

He sought to find

An answer to quiet

His soul and mind

Across mountains

And seas away

He struck gold

One fine summer day

 

There she was

Her eyes met his

Laughter spilled forth

It was hard to miss

 

Two hearts destined

To meet again

The past came back

Like refreshing rain

 

Each recalled

And skipped in delight

Souls searing

With love so bright

 

Both cherubs

Left their mark

To carry one another

Thru’ light and dark

 

The angels smiled

At both their own

The wings came back

And halos were worn

 

We each have our angels

So rich and divine

And you dear friend

You are mine!
