Her Angel Wings: A short poem about her

2011 Charcoal Drawing

Inspiration

When I was sixteen a beautiful girl, a classmate, a friend passed away in an accident. This short poem was something I wrote, expressing an unfamiliar pain. I had never mourned for a friend and as I had found in most my troubled times, writing a little something can help soothe the soul.

Her Angel Wings

(A Poem)

This rainy day

fits my mood.

Sorrow fills me,

anger too.

With angel wings

& a devil's sting,

she escaped

life's petty things.

So free me too

from this burdened spell.

They praised her life.

Life is hell.

Send me comfort

in my war,

my wounded spirit

is much too sore.

My legs are weary,

my heads gone faint.

Deliver your legions.

Send your saints.


Quote:

"Has this world been so kind

that you should leave with regret?

There are better things ahead

than any we leave behind."

-C.S Lewis-

A beautiful, wonderful and heartfelt tribute to your friend.

I recently discovered that a childhood friend of mine died of cancer last year. It doesn't seem real.

Voted up and away.
