Then He Was Gone

He came to me

An angel at night

In the midst of summer

We talked for hours

Every night

Awakening senses

I didn't know I had


Sweet healing words

That my body

Had longed

He was an angel

So gentle

Watching over me

Every morning

He came to me

Said things

That inspired me

I began to love him

So deeply

When the season changed

That is when

He disappeared

Leaving not even a trace

In the wind
