Angel At My Door (poem)

Was past my time when knocking came to door

Suspicious fear drew visions in my soul

If I stood still perhaps the sting might pass

There’s other havens harboring the night


Was then my heart was captured by a sound

A lady’s cries were reaching out for me

It sounded like a friend of long ago

And so I thought I’d give my fate a chance


So beautiful this angel of my eyes

So sad to see the pool of sorrow’s tears

Forgetting all I asked her to come in

And gave her all the comfort of my ear


She told me of the children she had lost

Each one of them a treasure to a heart

Delight it was to watch them romp and play

Till darkness came and took them all away


She tried and cried at oh so many doors

But found no friends who cared to spare a pain

Or face a sadness echoed in the wind

I marveled in her true imaginings


A stranger me said I will help you out

Together we will bring your children back

And as I grabbed my coat from off the door

I saw how gorgeous were the fairy’s wings
