Broken Angels

                   Sometimes, a broken angel still has wings
                Though stilled by tears for oh, so many things
                            He may not feel like flying
                            He may not know he can
                   He may feel like a puppet without strings

                  He doesn’t know the message that he brings
                      A bell can’t always listen when it rings
                            And he may feel like dying
                         When hope’s around the bend
                Cause, he can’t hear the music when he sings

                       For though the world’s not perfect
                                 Broken angels are
                   If they could only feel what others see
                         If faith can move a mountain
                              Love can heal a scar
                    With pain and suffering to be set free

                  Sometimes, a broken angel still has wings
                Yet crippled by his fear, how much it stings
                             If not for all his crying
                        He’d soar through to the end
         May he find peace through love from which it springs

'If faith can move a mountain, love can heal a scar.' I was so moved by these lines, Mike. Made me stop, think, contemplate, and resolve. Thanks a million for posting this. Warm wishes, Gershon

Hello Gentle Mike, an angel with a broken wing is still an angel. Even though he has one wing, he can still help people. That xxx is how I feel. Have a nice evening my friend. xxx-oooo.
