I am Angel

I am Angel

She is your beloved
Cast down from the sky
Drawn by your reflection
And stricken when you cry
It was in the long ago
A story, told and true
That grace would fall from glory
To come and rescue you
Determining your destiny
She lights up every lane
Raising you above each crest
With promise to remain
Faithful as she sings your song
Perched so very near
Bound to you, in silver chains
She drowns in her own tears
Crying for her heaven
Too long, she has endured
Your accolades of ecstasy
Her beauty, now obscured
By all the incantations
Whispered in the night
Having no significance
O’er wings that can’t take flight
Her scent no longer lingers
For she is pale with grief
The petals drop from roses
Stolen by a thief
