When the Angels Came

Updated on February 25, 2018

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

The day that you went away,

when the angels came

and left me behind,.

all the world cried that day

and the rains came pouring down.

Never thought I’d see another rainbow,

in the dark and windy sky,.

my love, you didn’t leave me behind,

though heavens portals are closed to me -

someday open they’ll be.

So for now stay by my side,

happy together in memory we’ll be,

I know you are not far away

and the angel choruses -

sing high above.

They sing for you and for me,

they sing for our love,

that continues to blossom and grow,

for we are still one, you and I -

we have a love for all eternity..

Come to me in the dark of night

and sit by my side,

hold my hand and let me feel you near -

for you are still to me so dear.

Bring on the rainbows,

bring on the sun in the sky,

I know when the nighttime comes,

you and I will walk side by side,

beneath the glittering night sky

and content I’ll be -

even though, you are not on this earth with me.

      Might be a good time to take a walk along the beach and watch the sunset. It'll be soothing.

      I sincerely hope so Shauna. I know Sid knows what day it is because he remembers his beloved Papa and he has chosen to dream the day away.

      Wow, Rasma. I guess my reading of this poem was Kismet. I'm sure you'll have a very special visit tonight.

      Rasma, this is a beautiful acceptance of your loss. I know he's beside you not just as darkness falls, but every moment.
