THE ANGEL CHILD

Per chance to dream ,I caught myself sleepingOnly to awake to the sound of soft weepingI found myself in a wide open roomBrilliant and white with the smell of perfumeI looked all around ,shading my eyesThen I saw the source of the soft little criesAs I approached I saw an angelic childA girl one at that ,tender and mild

I asked her what happened and why was she sad
she said “I am crying for those who were bad”

“As for me Im ok , Im not sad at all
“Im in heaven mister, I didnt fall”

“I was still very little when I first arrived
" I cry for the others who will not survive"

“I cant remember what got me here
“God erased everything that happened that year”

“Im not sad at all and tears are quite rare
“All angels here are all bright and fair”

“He told me to cry as he did one time
“He told me you would hear me and come make a rhyme”

“He said you would tell others that are hurting on earth
“That we are alive before we are birth”

“Children are conceived from the very first day
“It takes us nine months to prepare for our stay”

“We only hope to be born and our mothers have heart
“So that way we live from the womb to the start”

“Some of us make it and we learn about love
" Some of us don’t and we just see a dove"

“That’s what I saw when it happened to me
But now I know love and I know its in thee”

“He knew you would come if you heard me cry
He knows your a lover and don’t want things to die”

“He knows there are millions of great parents down there
He knows that you love us and always well care”

“Its the others that scare me , the evil and mean
They hit us and beat us and are quite obseen”

’They do not know love and they seek what they will
“Weather it be through a bottle or pill”

“They get all distorted and yell at our moms
“Then they hit her and hit us not having read psalms”

“Im hoping you write this and make it rhyme
Others will read it , there is still time”

“Young girls will read it and give us a chance
“They will lay boundries on their misguided romance”

" It will help us, if you write of these things
’It will keep others from getting little wings"

“We will have time to grow and to love
“Then when were old we can come up above”

I told her Im glad that she called for me
I told her I will write it and some will be free

Free from the pain that a mother will faceWhen years are gone by and they see your faceWondering what could have been , had they been more wiseWondering when they look into a childs eyes

“Now I must go, Im going to play
“I wish I didn’t have too go , but I cant stay”

“A new angels coming like the others you know
“Remember to tell people they reap what they sow”

Artist's Description

WE ALL KNOW WHAT THIS IS ABOUT . LETS STOP IT NOW AND GIVE THEM A CHANCE. This is the only poem I have ever writen that was difficult to proof read . I did not realize the impact of the words untill after I went back and tried to read what I had writen . I began to weep . I was exhausted as if something drained from me. I just sent it , as if I had just finished a journey and was delivering a message. Now I am wondering if I really was asleep and got up and wrote this sleep writing :O) thats a new one…..sleep writing ( writing in an unaware state of mind : to dictate a thought without realizing the essence or deepth of the thought ) :O) Maybe the Angel typed for me . I dont know.
