Angel At My Door (poem)

Updated on January 15, 2014

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
