Saved By An Angel

Updated on June 22, 2009

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.

      I can't take credit for this one. I posted this for a friend hubber who could not publish it under his real name. Its here for he and she.

      Dear heart, I've said it elsewhere and after reading this I have to say it again here: God bless you and keep you in his hands.

      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.

      i had to come again and read this over and over again. Surprisingly it shook me harder and throw a huge bundle of feeling and emotions that i hadn't felt in a while. The work and feeling put into this poem is breathtaking. AMAZING!!!!

      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.

      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'.

      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.

      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.

      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.
