DEATH OF AN ANGEL

A cool summer night
A cloudy sky, no stars to be seen
Another one of the angels gone
Taken to heaven forever

Close your eyes and listen carefully
The sound of beating wings
Softly fluttering back and forth
Whispers of love and of loss

Cries of agony and of pain
Raise your face to heaven
Offer your tears as a sacrifice
Your pain will be slowly erased

Memories will take its place
Thoughts of joy and of laughter
Numbing the aching pain of loss
The loss of love and the taking of angel.

-Sarah E. Smith
