The Flickering Light

The Flickering Light

I can hear the light patter of the rain on the window pane

It soothes and comforts me as I lay here on my bed

I can smell the freshness in the air and the breeze so light

upon my head

I start to close my eyes and wonder off to sleep

Suddenly I see a flickering light in the distance and I hear a woman weep

I try to get closer and ask her what is wrong

But as I step forward the light and the woman are gone

I'm so worried about her what can the problem be

I will have to find her and sooth her with my company

I turn down every corner and walk down every path

How did she disappear and where did she go so fast

I looked what seemed for hours and finally gave up the search

For I was growing weary and my legs began to hurt

I decided to go home and go right back to sleep

And lay cozy under the blankets and rest my tired feet

But as I lay in bed I saw it once again

The flicker of the light was on her dress upon the hem

I had only been dreaming I had never left my bed

And the woman that I spoke of was gently rubbing my head

I looked into her face she was as beautiful as could be

She was a guardian angel watching over me

I can just see you writing these hubs! It seems to flow so easily and naturally and the stories you paint are very clear and inspirational. I love poetry and when I write it, I know it makes perfect sense to my own self and I can "feel" and "experience" the words I write. I can honestly say though that most poetry I read doesn't affect me that way. However, yours does. Especially this one here. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you.

We all need to see that flicker of light; atleast I do to remember that there is a guardian angel there in the time of need.

Hi Tracy, I have missed you. I came over for the meat loaf recipe. I cooked it once and it was a hit. I am tossing one together tonight. God Bless you sister..

I Love this poem Tracy. It is so translucent and heartfelt. I could feel the warmth of our Savior in these tender words. Yes we have angels. Thank You Jesus. I have a few angel stories. On one of them I actually took a picture and when I got home an angel. "angels on my path' I have a new writing 'to love larger' Check it out girlfriend. Hugs
