"The Fall and The Lift"
I awoke from a terrifying fall into the gushing, powerful Niagara Falls. It bothered me, but I felt solace at the same time. Eyes half closed, I tried to feel for my pad and pen that I always carefully arrange on my night table. Here goes…
Cloudy white mist, heavy cascading water like thunder
Curiosity brought me falling head down Niagara Falls
My highest screams prayed to take me not into death slumber
“Angel of God, my guardian dear, please hear my calls!”
Far below is the Maid of the Mist washed in blue
Blue hooded spectators horrified, stoned in fright
As water swallowed me as I swallowed in, too
I see infinite drops on them, a clear visible sight.
Two pure blinding glows in human form
Caught me half way through my fall
Brushed their gigantic wings blowing like a storm
One said, “Don’t be afraid, I’m Vincent and this is Paul.”
Conscious as I was, wide-eyed and shivering
“I am unprepared, don’t take me yet,” I pleaded
“Silly woman,” said Paul heavenly shimmering
“We rescued you from the fall; your prayers have been answered.”
“You’ll be safe here. Be brave, have courage,” promised Vincent
I lay on top of smooth stones where waters make its pass
Angels are beautiful beings, hired workers and benevolent
Believing is the answer, it always been has.
Then Vincent and Paul became silent, flashing sweet smiles
It was pure quietness; they have not spoken another word
Their bright aura steadily shone right before my very eyes
My able-bodied angels bore neither armour nor sword.
And so now I conclude to this story that woke me
That both my angels assured me on the stones that I’d be okay
Where in bed, I opened my eyes, smiled, down on one knee
I watched them go off in a second swift as they flew away.

Finding the Meanings to My Dream
To see angels in your dream symbolize goodness, purity, protection, comfort and consolation. Pay careful attention to the message that the angels are trying to convey. These messages serve as a guide toward greater fulfillment and happiness. Alternatively, it signifies an unusual disturbance in your soul. -dreammoods.com
To see a waterfall in your dream is symbolic of letting go. You are releasing all those pent up emotions and negative feelings. Alternatively, the dream represents your goals and desires. In particular, if the waterfall is clear, then it represents revitalization, regeneration and renewal. -dreammoods.com
To dream that you fall and are frightened indicates a lack of control, insecurity, and/or lack of support in your waking life. You may be experiencing some major struggle and/or overwhelming problem. It may also imply that you have failed to achieve a goal that you have set forth for yourself.
To dream that you are free-falling through water indicates that you are feeling overwhelmed with emotions. You may feel that it is easier to give up, then to try to stay afloat or prevent yourself from going under. -dreammoods.com
