~~ Another Angel ~~   7 comments

Through the foggy realm of sleep

A hazy slyph came from the deep

And in this haunting nighttime mist

Came a tender touch, then a kiss.

.

This sprightly spirit danced through the room

Banishing the impending gloom

Her gown a lacey, gauzy veil

Her features pallid white, and pale.

.

Her scent jasmine and columbine

Mixed with that of rose and wine

She vanished in the morning’s glare

The sleeper reaching in despair.

.

With dawn all trace of her was gone

‘cept a hint of jasmine in the air

On the nightstand in the sun

A wilted rose was laying there.

Another star shines in the night sky…

And heaven gained another angel…
