It has been such a long time, but I still remember
How I begged,
How I pleaded,
And how I prayed that they would stop.
But they would not.
And so, being left with no other recourse,
I called upon the angels(the ones who loved me).
I called each by their given name,
And one by one, they descended,
Filling the air above me and the space around me
With bright light and the sweetest voices you have ever heard
That followed me wherever I went,
Until the the pain that the others had caused, ended.
There was no longer a reason for them to remain, but they did,
Encircling and protecting me always.
Then, one day I noticed that everywhere I looked,
Everything and everyone that was here before was gone,
Replaced by shinning new vistas and familiar faces,
Smiling and nodding, sometimes,
And all bathed in that light, that same glorious light,
Listening to the sound of those sweet voices.
All together now, and at peace, at last.
