Saved By An Angel

This is not my poem; I am merely the messenger.  I am acting as a liaison between a poet, who chooses to be faceless, and his angel, who must remain nameless.  Its so romantic and tragic; it just kills me.  So without further adieu, I present his poem:

I remember long ago,

a rainy afternoon and a day away from school,

you walked into my life with a snide remark,

and a quick smile. 

My breath stopped the moment I saw you.

we danced a dance of words,

but never of hearts,

we missed out on a rare opportunity,

to love one another unreservedly.

We missed out on all of the passion 

we shared for one another because we

did not take the time to care not for 

what others thought of us.

Now we have met again.

You found me on a stormy shore

where I lay lonely and cold.

You breathed life into a lifeless soul,

and warmed me with your heart.

I love you still my one true love,

even though we must never intertwine.

Our lives are now separate,

you have a spouse, 

and I have mine.

We can now only live out our love 

within our dreams.

A fantasy never to be realized.

I missed you so,

and now miss you more.

You have brought me back

from the dead. 

My angel.

    A 100th hub should be some kind of marker. I've stalled for days knowing it needs to be randy in topic and more that just another one of my poems. So I've decided to cheat. Hubpages unpublished one of my best grossing...

I know, it makes me so sad. But many good poems come from pain.

Sometimes the passion unrealized and unfulfilled is better than the reality might ever be. I love this poem. It makes me want to cry.

Beautiful, purely beautiful. Remind me so much of Lord Byron's poem 'When we two are parted.' -sigh- Thank you for sharing this, Randy.

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Oh ladies, Angel, the intended, Candie, Hawkes, Gypsy, Disturbia and AIDY I think we were all touched by his poem. Not just his words but the sad story it self. I wish I could pen a happy ending for them.

Invictus, yes I can see that he's touched many. Common theme I guess. It touched me, so I had to publish it... o.k. that's a lie. He's a poet and I can't say no to a poet. Lol.

alekhouse, Glad you came by even though this isn't one of my pieces, I'm glad you like it.

Uriel, It really got to me too.

The Angel 7 years ago

Yes, thank you, Randy for posting this for us... It will be something that I will ALWAYS be able to have.

The Poet, thank you for writing this and for loving me, still, after ALL these years, I too, feel alive, and as for the "happy" ending, it is just this, we will always be friends, and I will always have the beautiful memories, now this beautiful poem... Thank you.

Beautiful poem. Happy endings are relative. I would say the poem is tragic however, he seems to have found new life in his angel even if he is separated from her. So perhaps it is not so tragic after all. I would call it bitter-sweet.


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

rajpravin431, I'm glad you enjoyed his poem; poetry can definitely be a melancholy thing!

Thanks for your comments Moyra. It sounds like they are going to be lifelong friends at least.

There is nothing to be added here, but I have to wonder...if we could actually come to grips with the fact that 'this is our only life and time is limited, would we still squander the moments we have to conceal the lies that hold us prisoner'.


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Oh Paris, I often wonder if I'll look back at my life and scorn myself for being a coward. Although I have left my latest prison.

Randy, you have given not only the two involved but also the rest of us a very great experience. To the poet, you have written feelings that are felt by many and put them to read. To console ourselves, to let us know we are aren't alone and shouldn't feel shame for feelings that linger for that one true love. Thank you for clearing my conscious and allowing me to enjoy the feelings I have. To Angel, thank you for coming and writing a lovely message back. I read the poem and teared up. Then I read Randy's, The Poet's, and Angels comments and I received a feeling of warmth. Thank you, all three, for sharing such a heart felt experience.
