Angel Tears

Year after year Torrential rains, fall Winds rip apart humanities dreams We are flooded and ask why? The angels cry For all of us We are inundated with their tears As they weep, we who still breathe, live on in daily fear Mothers, fathers, sons and daughters Taken before their time Some see fit to hasten their journeys They know not an angels tears How many of us have been defeated By the depth of sadness, life seems cheated So blinded we are inside our heads The tears drowning us until we dead Drowning our hopes and feeding our fears What are we to do? Look beyond the angel tears See that heaven removes all fears The tormented on earth, as they rise above Knowing that paradise is theirs, clouds only below Finally they feel the smiles within Wishing we too, in contentment could know The happiness that rises from inside the soul Note: My meager attempt to offer someone comfort here

This is not meager at all Arthur; Love the creative way in which you expressed the sad reality of humankind that has plagued us since the beginning of human existence and shared your spiritual view to bring comfort to those of us who grieve. Very thoughtful and much appreciated that you took the time to offer some comfort by way of this poem. Thank you.
