The angels smiled
Oh yes they did
When to their own
Farewell they bid

His journey set
A task anew
Reformed and invisible
The wings he knew

A tricky job
This cherub had
To find his ward
And make her glad

A wailing babe
Soon was born
All past memories
Erased and gone

Steady he grew
Years flew by

All seemed perfect
Yet somehow dry

Travelling the world
He sought to find
An answer to quiet
His soul and mind

Across mountains
And seas away
He struck gold
One fine summer day

There she was
Her eyes met his
Laughter spilled forth
It was hard to miss

Two hearts destined
To meet again
The past came back
Like refreshing rain

Each recalled
And skipped in delight
Souls searing
With love so bright

Both cherubs
Left their mark
To carry one another
Thru’ light and dark

The angels smiled
At both their own
The wings came back
And halos were worn

We each have our angels
So rich and divine
And my dear boy
You are mine!
