My Guardian Angel

My world was black,
full of dark clouds and rain.
My heart was so empty,
full of anger and pain.

I walked all alone,
growing lost and confused.
I cried deep inside,
feeling worthless and used.

My footsteps grew silent,
but echoed inside.
My breathing was slowing,
I was starting to die.

The rain was so cold,
cutting through me like knives.
My vision was blurring,
I was starting to cry.

I took one more step,
then collapsed to the ground.
I could no longer move,
I could not make a sound.

My eyelids grew heavy,
I was losing my sight.
But off in the distance,
I saw a small light.

The light became brighter,
the closer it came.
It was a beautiful woman,
I was going insane.

She knelt down beside me,
with tears in her eyes.
She flashed a small smile,
and started to cry.

She bent down and whispered,
right next to my ear.
Please don’t give up,
let go of your fear.

She put a small hand,
right next to my heart.
My pain slowly faded,
it was no longer dark.

I could make out her face,
as my vision was cleared.
She looked so familiar,
as she wiped away tears.

I asked her her name,
and I asked why she cared.
She simply just smiled,
and sat there and stared.

I was always your friend,
and now i’m like you.
An outcasted fool,
who hadn’t a clue.

The rain had stopped falling,
as she helped me to stand.
And we walked away smiling,
best friends, hand in hand…
