An Angel

Lonesome in the black of night, I think of you, an angel,
there in a river of moonlight. Oh, to view an angel!

A cameo against the dark, face seen just in profile,
its texture gossamer; I'd gasp, then pursue an angel.

Would you come If I hung in the balance of life and death?
Come to me like those of whom there are so few, an angel!

I dream of you; a shelter you would be, to take me in.
You alone could lift me, dispel my gloom, you, an angel.

Here I am, mere Earth Girl, rooted by rationality,
longing for one glimpse of what I never knew - an angel.

    This is quite good, Miss Andrea. Better than I could ever do in a demanding form. One possible critique- how about " you're" instead of you at the end od couplet 4? Just a thought. Ithink it might read betteer, but then that's just me... Thank you for your kindness towards me. I do appreciate it! Love, Gerard.
