An angel gave wings to you so you can fly
Never will life pass you by
Toward the sky you will guide
Hovering above the world so high
On a cloud you sit as other's sigh
Never will you fall from the sky
Your angels taught you how to fly
L-iving in a world of vast
souls formed from
another voided world,
E-ntering thru portals
from their world to earth.
O-ozing spetacular smell
and wail when the chips
N-urtured from cradle to
entity with a new world
O-rganizes oneself for the
task ahead,passing thru
hurdles of life unabased
R-eaps the fruit of labor
with joy or heavy heart.
A-ge sets in,mission
accomplished or not will
dawn on the entity.
I-n retrospect,he thinks
about his childhood and
how life was to him.
L-iving in confidence or
shame,he bows his head
in victory or defeat.
O-nly the taste of time
will tell the durability of
V-oid of preference the
aim result bears the
foundation for his lineage.
E-njoyment or lack lies
with the works of the
man,for there is no food
for the slothful.
Y-oung ones,a stitch in
time saves nine,make
haste while the sun
O-iling your lamb always
like the ten virgins is the
key to success.
U-rging you to shun peer
pressure and focus on
the course marked out
for you by fate,so a
fulfilled life you shall live.
An acrostic for you
Awaken my angel, adventure awaits.
Navigate through nature, nirvana is near.
Grant your growing grace the gift to shine.
Endless emotions elate your soul
Love lavishly for love will last forever
Destruction is the devil's dastardly deed
Evoking each and every emotion
Vaporizing my virgin values
Ironically intoxicating my insecurities
Love leaves and Lucifer's lies win
"I heard an angel speak last night and he said 'write'" Elizabeth Barrett Browning
T here was a cemetery across from the street where I lived when I was young.
H ot summer days could find us there strolling down its winding shady pathways,
E ven racing bikes or playing Hide ’n Seek among trees and ornate granite stones.
B eyond the wide middle part of that graveyard, way in the very back,
L ay a secluded area set apart for the deceased of a prestigious family.
U ltimately my siblings and I ended up at the mausoleum in the center of that spot.
E ager to view its main attraction, we would stand on tiptoes before its window. . . .
A ll kinds of angels were scattered throughout that cemetery's sprawling lawn, but
N ot one outdid the angel appearing violet blue through that stained glass window.
G uarding the tomb of a small child, she knelt gracefully, her true hue pure white.
E ventually after years of showing her to friends, I left home forever; on my mind
L ingers this memory; on tiptoes, I'm marveling, face pressed against blue glass.
L ove is everything to me
O nly people don’t seem to see
V oices from the inner regions
E arnestly telling us to simply care
I nside messages we cannot recognize
S tymied by years of ignorance and greed
A mazing dreams if we could but see
L inked into love through past lives unknown
L et the light shine through to a mind at peace
(Dedicated to Folake)
Your eyes, woman
are like twilight rainbow
amorously bearing aloft passions of mine
toward androcytic ecstacy.
They tell of endless lights.
Night skies clarion the warmth of you
keep me balled-up till
i am tilted to your adorned essence.
May I call up words to adore you,
agglomerate them into a panoply of worshippers
unsandalled before you
like Moses at the burning bush.
And now you seem to fall asleep
but you tell me it's the heavy night
bidding toward a sunny dawn
wherein our love is lighted.
Slowly I let you fall asleep
impatient with the long night
waiting to gaze once more
into the eyes of my lovely love.
Then a lip is placed on yours
and you rouse up wide-eyed
smiling at my romantic move.
We enjoyed the night, cruising on.
Who am I?
W-eaned from tender
age,in noble family of ten.
H-urt by the demise of
the tube that brought
me into this theater of
struggles and pains.
O-rdered about by the
whimps of this
world,facing the hurdles
of life daily from
cradle,never giving up
A-fine young man of 28
I am,who has the
experience and wisdom
of the aged.
M-astering the arts of
life-learning from lessons
of life's victims and

Happy birthday you're growing up fast.
A beautiful and amazing young woman
Pretty Cool and Funny
Pure in the heart
You just gotta keep on keeping on
Beautiful and Rad
Including that i will by sad that you are moving
Really just sweet and caring
The Best Girl in town
Happy Birthday to you
Delete all the bad memories and put yesterday in as a good one
Amazing funny and pretty
You just gotta Keep on Keeping on.
The Angel I Knew
Skin so fair like snow as no comparison
With hair so wild and eyes which shows,
somewhat sad and yet fear-ish glow.
How long do you plan to keep me
by your side?
Under you spell by sound of voice,I fall
to my knees for you.Batter,broken and scared
Yet even betrayed I'll stay by your side loyal
and proud foremost happy. As I stand by your
Side I look into your eyes.
The turning leaves rain upon your head.
The worse be I captivated by you.With your
Snowy white skin
Wild hair and twilighted eyes
You spread your angelica wings,you took off leaving me
But with beautiful memories,So that I never forget
Well see each other again.
But for now
Your The Angel I once Knew
The keeper of god’s love.
Being an Angel in the sky.
Watching you and I.
Sitting there on your cloud,
Playing cards, and hanging around.
Playing your harp.
Singing a song.
Hoping humans come along.
God says “ Angel go to earth, go find the person who spoke first
Bring him here bring him to me,
This is your mission you see. “
“Yes my lord.” The angel as gone to find the first person,
Who sang this song.
Amazing Grace, that super song.
Go find john, go find him, and bring along,
We need to know how he,
sung that song.
The slaves that have long gone,
The ships that carried this beautiful song,
Oh my gosh were as John gone?
He can’t go far, the planets so small,
Why his he not standing tall?
The tune for that song he did not create,
It was hummed by his cargo
A, dark mass of slaves in a horrid state.
John must of thought this was bad, and it made him so very sad .
There you go
Making me fear the person I am
Trying to put me down
My bond to you is stronger than I thought
I love and hate you
Not for the unforgivable things you’ve done
But for putting me in that position
Where believing in myself
Is so far out of context
That I hate who I am so completely
For me to get better I need you more than ever
To just be who your supposed to be to the person who I am
Haunting, they came to me
Eating away all the joy I see
Amid laughter so free
Lingering, I thought it’ll be
Inside a soul of bliss and glee…
Nabbing away the rest of me
Gladly smiling, they invaded me
Many hours I cried for thee
Each day I hoped you’d rescue me
Why and how I did not know
In such a huge world you’ll find me
Try did I to let hope flow
Here, inside this thirsty sea
Kneel did I but didn’t know why
Is it that you’re an angel from up high
Never seeing such beauty such grace
Depart not said I with a mournful cry
Never please I need u so much
Endless let your love to me
Stay with me oh I need you
Smile for me my angel of truth
Your belly has grown so big, the glow on your face is priceless, your hair so vibrant, I love the smile on your face when you feel your little one kicking, I love it when you crave weird foods, everything is going well, you are 8 months now, you look like you are going to pop, your feet swell, your in the bathroom more than the toilet bowel is, you can not wait for this to be over, your almost 9 months now you feel a wetness on your chair, it is time, you rush, you prepare, but you never seem to have everything, your at the hospital, your about 3 centimeters dilated, there is still some time to go, your patient, you waited this long, your 7 centimeters, 8, and 9, you hope it is almost time, you feel like you want to push, you push, and push, you hear the baby cry, you believe that things are okay, because that is what you were told, so it is time to say goodbye, you are tired and need some sleep, you hold your baby for some time, you pass him to the nurse, she sings him a lullaby, you fall asleep, your sleep was dreamless, but you are now awaken in a nightmare that will never end, your baby is in a forever sleep, but how could this end, it just all began, you do not know what happen, you heard his cry, you touched him, he opened his eyes, so why is he gone, from this day you will forever be changed, you held your true love tight before the nurse took him away, you blamed yourself, you question your actions, but it was not your fault, this just sometimes happens, you try to move on with your life, but that becomes difficult, you smile but you are frowning inside, you try to make things right, you try to hide your pain, but everyday you live in sorrow, I know that you are not perfect, but you need to look forward to tomorrow, you can not change what happened, you carried a little angel for 9 months long, then God took him so fast, maybe he has special plans for him, in heaven he is having a blast, even though you do not have him with you, I know that he loves you so, because I saw the way he looked at you, this is something that I know, you are the best mom in the world, I am so glad that he atleast got to meet you, it is not easy to carry on like you do, with the positive attitude that you show, I know one thing for sure, your the strongest mom I know.

The Last Wish
Ahh! In this last day,
Let me see the sun shining on the hay......
for a last time......
in a last vision.....
let me see the Almighty.......,
Let the horrid sins of men,
Let the sea of hope.........,
tide us over.
For all,and ever
let sickness and ailments.......
Be banished for ever......
Let me for a last time...............................................,
Close my eyes,
Living in the city of lights
One among many Angels in flight
Souls that connect, artists we are
Always a place to converse with a star
Never boring or lonely because
Gravity pulls us together with buzz
Everything moving in fast pace
Life is simply a beautiful race
Engraved in my heart this city I love
Sunshine and diamonds and friends in my land.
A land of beauty art and aspirations
The most exciting place to take vacations.
When I saw him upon the cross my heart and mind did ache.
How I could allow this to happen, I must do something, I thought.
An Angel came into my soul, saying he would be reborn.
Three days, then he will rise up into heaven, not to forsake.
Easter day will be remembered for the day he rose to be sought.
Angels will rejoice his rise into his father’s kingdom newly born.
Stories of healings, miracles performed; journeys he did make.
Telling of his sacrifice for all humankind, our salvation bought.
Evil finally destroyed as the earthly waters and mountains are torn.
Revelations tells of his ultimate glorious return, for our soul’s sake.
My soul embraced promises the Angels sang and continually taught.
Every hour, minute, I watched my heart sank into painful scorn.
Another Angel came to me, said do not falter his word, or break.
Never forget the love and companionship, all the happiness he brought.
Sincerity and remembrance is what our lord desires with blessings to adorn.
Take these words and sights to the future; tell them it was no mistake.
Our Lord in Heaven, Gods Son, will return; when final battle is fought.
My children are forgiven all sins; listen closely for the sound of Gabriel’s horn.
Every believer with true love, will live forever, there will be no way, for to fake.

Proud is the flame that reaches to the sky.
Angels spread their wings and begin to fly.
Into the heavens rising and reaching,
Never ending and always teaching.
Tell me of your ancient ways.
Wings the color of fire kissed skin.
Invigorating the energy from within.
Trembling hands that manipulate the pain.
Hold me in your sheltered arms again.
Free me from the burning agony.
I seek out refuge, angels come save me.
Revive my spirit from a life in which it was torn.
Embracing another life to which I am now reborn.

I touch myself hoping you are with;
Days are long and through the night stars keep me awake
I keep having flashes of you but it’s all just the light
Do you feel this wind which keeps blowing outside?
If this is my last night in this light;
Will you come and switch it on for me?
Even the noisy dogs seems to not destruct me to this passion
What is this feeling i have for that it’s so hard to get it away?
Every day that pass is leaving a hole to my soul
No this is really the feeling i have been hoping for
But is it supposed to be like this;
If our destiny is keep surpassing me like this; can i let it pass
I planned so many yet none has happened.
If only we can just meet now, mine will be earth
So we can just enjoy this moment.
it's in the eveing theirs on one around as night comes I long too hear their sound.where their from no mortal can see angels of the universe they must be.i can not let no one know they are hear cause mankind they do fear.god's great spirit dwell in the atmosphere they call home the universe they do roam.perfect beans choosen by god above their society is based on love.they can not interfere with our lives,they let no man or women know of their kind.trllions of years they are advanced in technology and I invent for them,my loves and my friends I hope too go with them in the end.

A ngelical looking been from the heavens
N ever did I think I would be with someone like you
G reat full I am to have you
E ager to meet you I am
L oving you with all my heart
O dear angel were did thee come from
F or you attacked my heart with a simple stare
M y dear angel
I think of thee every day
N or when I’m awake or a sleep I stop thinking of you
E ver did I to have a girlfriend like you, well now I do
Love is an equation with 2 dimension! private and professional , yet none of them should be merged! else you can find yourself neutral and alone!
I feel like I just left past shadows runaway
Before I grow taller in more ways that my soul needs
I first saw the future's mirror and sweet dreams that still feeds
My wick heart on hope's table that sends me faraway...
It seems to me that rock called sun is alive
Bringing vibes for those poor people who always pray
Without knowing that a stupid wish worth a life
Who goes into a world of forgiveness and happiness, where every angel lays...
My conscience is bleeding and I hear the death's crazy lyrics
My life is a slide show now and my only friend is the misery
When I say faith I hope to see innocence's dynasty
The Christians say I need Jesus touch in my world's roots...
I make mistakes like everyone, but I don't wish perfection
I only need God's angel for protection and affection
Sometimes I miss childhood with his naivety
And regret I'm a beginner is this world full of insanity...
Angels gave you wings so you can fly
Never will they allow you to fall
God gave you to me to always love
Everyday with you is a gift from above
Loving you is always a pleasure
Always will your angels guide you as you fly
Wonder by field
To divvy divulging
I breath only heavily
My Asians are healthy
Lost in your eyes,
A pleasant suprise.
Vanity at it's best.
Enticing all of the rest.
No one will ever
Do what I do, so clever.
End the day with a kiss.
Rue the days we miss.

Contest: Poems of Praise by Cathie Lindsey
Gentle you were, in your smile
Involuntarily shaking limbs, until your
Tiny frame, into my hands, it slipped
Amusing me with gorgeous amusements
Negating in me those moments of meaninglessness
Joyfully, with tiny fingers
Affecting more life into my faltering being
Like the season of spring
Invigorating the shuddering mother earth
Vanished with your birth were
Ills that crippled us for fourteen years
Causing us to sing those songs
That makes God leap and dance!
Overwhelmed by a sudden birth, and
Remembering Tagore, we named you Gitanjali
lord all I need is your light too sheild me from evil tonight. in this spiritual battle I undertake I fight for your peoples sake. no one needs ever see the horrors that fall on me or how real evil work it would scare them too death and take their breath. dementional worlds every where but they wont open put for a few of us thank god what a plus. jesus ill take your teachings every where your warrior davids not scared.
Matthew was my first, named for my brother
Agreat heart he has, a good 14 year old he is
Truly a miracle, when first he was born
To the top of his blond head, I gave him a kiss
He, from the start, became my best friend
Everything he ever does, meets with success
Will always be my baby boy, until the day, I lay to rest.
Kayla, my first girl, an angel from heaven
Arrived in this world just twelve years ago
Yelling to all that I had a daughter, proud dad I am
Letting all see her beauty and my love that showed
An angel she is still today.
Megan, my second girl, still such a beauty
Earned all my love even before she was born
Gives to me, now, for the ten years I’ve known her
A love that is genuine, sometimes funny and always warm
Never leaving anyone without a smile.
Daniel, the baby, is just now eight years old
Actually tries to do everything, always alone
Never gives up when things might be difficult
In fact sounds quite older, when on the phone
Ever the one to jump without thinking
Leaving me scared, but proud to call him, son.
My every wish for them in life is all their dreams to come true
Young typical children they are and good children, too!
Knowing them is to appreciate them even more
Inspiring others, somehow they really can and do
Deepening my love for them each and every day
Simply because they’re about and giving love, true.
