a precious gift

darkness fell
eerie was the world
wolves bayed at the moon
foretelling the danger
that lurked
the devil walked the earth
in search of the weak one
ready to commit
the ultimate betrayal of life
thunder cracked across the sky
lightning bolts appeared
the devil walked with a long stride
laughing at the thunder
for he feared nothing
he peered in each of the windows
of her small cottage
her fireplace was lit
her furniture in perfect order
roses adorned her table
each rose wilted
as he turned the knob
on the front door
yet, there was no aroma of death
darkness did not hang over her rooms
there was the sweet smell
of freshly baked sugar cookies
confused.. the devil walked
from room to room
slowly he opened her bedroom door
there was a streak of light
suddenly he was looking through a prism
there stood an Angel
filled with power and light
her wings covering the girl
singing a hymn
a sleeping pill bottle lying on the floor
but it was not empty … it was full
he screamed at the heavens
the Angel’s singing
drowned out his roar
good triumphed over evil
an Angel bestowed her love
pulling an empty soul
from the depths of despair
making her realize that each day is
a precious gift

a precious gift
