Angel's View

Is it really any wonder
     the love a stranger might receive
Though he be lost in the valley
     and there be times he don't believe?
Can he wait for coming angels
     to deliver a last reprieve,
Or must he travel evermore
     through the dreams that the sinners weave?

Does the dyeing man wrest a soul
     from one that follows close behind,
Or does he lay his trust with those
     whom have no promises aligned?
The shelters of reality 
     have moved away from ties that bind,
They’ve opened up the yesterdays
     and all the cuts that seemed unkind.

Come the settling of the ev’ning,
     when distant church bells have been rung,
Breezes carry the hollow words
     held by the songs that once were sung.
Some memories still call the tune
     to which the younger clans have clung,
While futures ride on winds of change
     far from where the lost souls were hung.

Now count the days until the tides
     can move love through a change of hue,
Recall the face of one now gone
     and all it was he never knew.
Maybe the voices offer up
     more than predictions made for you
While strangers move quick from the night,
     once more into the angel’s view.
