Mis Angeles

I've seen two angels pass me by;
I was small and weak and I could not follow.
I've heard broken wings may learn to fly,
But until mine do, here I stay.

I've loved those angels, each at a time,
One was light, one dark, but they both paused for me,
Saying, darling, come with me; I'll help you to climb.
But I was afraid- here I stay.

I've held those angels, in my hands, in my arms.
When they flew on, though, I was left behind.
Each separation ripped holes in my heart.
Unable to mend, here I stay.

Now alone, I've no angels, I have nothing at all.
No comfort, no healing, no security.
Perhaps rising up would've caused me to fall;
But I'll never know - here I stay.

Really liked this piece. I've met an angel too who left and was named Lucas. You just have to hold on to the moments you hve with them because you never know when they'll up and moce to Ireland.
