...And i saw that flash of the sun today

and my entire existence was made whole.

As though I now had purpose,

it nearly touched my soul,

those eyes of radiance,

how they pierce me so,

and though the sun may set tonight,

I'll never let that feeling go.

In an instant the light was gone,

as if it had never been there before,

But I knew all along,

I was watching an angel soar.

Her eyes did light upon me,

brightening up my life,

and with every wave of the ocean,

I saw with a better sight,

The beauty of the world,

my surroundings so surreal.

In one moment, one flash of light,

all my wounds had healed.

All my burdens seemed weightless,

all my woes, no longer worries.

I was at peace, I was calm,

no need to rush or hurry.

Everything was clear,

everything was as it was meant to be.

And to this day that flash, that angel,

I have yet again to see.

She left me with a gift,

a reflection of all the good in life,

and if you're fortunate enough,

You'll catch a glimpse before the sun rise.

      Oh for cryin out loud. Bella's going to scold me as I'm crying once again.

      I literally have broken fingers I've worked so hard all my life, and never in those tens of thousand of hours have I been so touched by someone's response to something I've done.

      That was exquisitely beautiful. I am at a loss for words (and that's a rare thing indeed).

      I'll have to write something more appropriately beautiful in response, but it'll take me some time to get up off the floor.

      You are an angel sent to me from heaven. I have doubt about it...
