An Angel That Hid Her Wings


Finding my inspiration through the voice of music and poetry. Being creative and finding ways in making life easier and smarter for others.


I still remember 
the first day we met,
it was a day at the office,
so sweet, so humble,
how could I forget?

The days 
the months 
the years went by,
yet you still remained 
so positively sublime

Those days I felt 
my mind in a rut,
you held me and said 
"all will be fine, 
I feel it in my gut",

I always could see 
the stress you were under,
You never uttered a word
You took it like a soldier,
Though it wasn't your blunder

There came that one day,
I saw you in pain,
I called out for help,
but they all looked away

I phoned for an ambulance
feeling something was not right,
you cried out to me
and told me your chest felt so tight

Still then 
no one else came near,
I held you close
you were overwhelmed with fear,
you told me about your son 
so loved and so dear,
"You doing so well", 
please don't ever fear,
immediately my eye's
welled up with tears

The medics did come 
doing all that they could, 
you then closed your eyes,
I never thought 
it would be for good

This memory will always 
pull my heart strings,
as you will always in my eyes 
be "An Angel that hid her wings"

From one heart to the another

A very good friend came into my life but before I knew it, she was taken away.

Appreciate and embrace your loved ones and life.

The heart is something so powerful, it keeps you alive and never forgets.

Thank you for your precious comment Ruby,

It's not easy to express the heartache, when a loved one is lost. But to feed it into poetry, gives it a supernatural yet instrumental voice, that you feel is sent to the universe and the heavens.

This tugs the heartstrings, so sad to lose someone we love.
