Angels Do Exist

She appeared in brilliant light-
on one starless December night.
             ~and~
I abandoned my belief that 
angels do not exist.
For I’ve seen the glory heaven
bestows when death prevails-
I refuse to believe souls ascend
not above to gates of praise,
forever adored and appreciated. 

Because I’ve seen it; felt the 
presence of the King of all Kings, 
Savior of heaven and earth with her...
          by His side. 
          (hands fade to my cheek; 
          wiping years of pain away)

Stubborn am I when it comes 
to my beliefs-
My tenacity grows and I am 
forever seeking her in another
reverie (ripples of pursuit)- 
my eyes closed, hearts connected…
                                     perpetually.

My intranscigence runs deep;
it settles in my marrow and
flows through my violet veins.
    (peace fills my soul)

I shall never cease believing 
in angels…
             for she is my angel.
