Guardian Angel

GUARDIAN ANGEL
Last night I had a dream, it had a tale to tell I dreamed I saw an Angel the poor thing wasn't well His body bruised and battered, his wings were ripped and torn he looked as if he wished that I was never born I walked up to him and I asked, "Angel how can this be" He turned around and paused a bit then spoke these words to me I am your Guardian Angel a great task as you can see You've run a muck all your life look what it's done to me These bruises are from shielding you in times both dice and ill Those dangerous things you had used I often paid the bill See my wings are ripped and torn, a noble badge that I wear How often they have flown you from evil unaware Each Mark is its own story of deadly wounds destroyed You've made me wish more than once that I was unemployed If only you could make it and stand up on your own Oh don't you fret or worry you shall not be left alone But please try to remember that I'm getting old and frail We will see if you can help yourself only time will tell I could not believe all I'd heard let alone how much he cared I sat and wept upon his shoulder then left in despair The next morning I pondered all the things that I had done And that's when the transformation hit, my life had finally begun So I made a final decision to change my life and try And in the distance I thought I heard a frail old Angel cry...

I just have to say that this poem is amazing! It has serious substance, lots of emotion, hope, despair, serious yet comical, an awesome story told in this piece of perfection that you have written. A definite 7+
