THE ANGEL OF HOPE

In the still of the night my mind has its wayPondering thoughts from the trials of the dayI close my eyes thinking and I awake in a dreamStartled and baffled , as the moon had a gleam

wondering at what I saw, maybe it was me, maybe nothing at all
it was As if all time had stopped even the clock on the wall

I knew this was something that was not in my controlI knew I was placed there from the maker of my soulAs strange as it seemed it was familiar to meTo be taken to places that others dont seeI knew I was waiting ,but I knew not what fortill the wind began to blow and time opened its doorI beheld an angel of beauty unseenHer hair was like gold and her face like a dreamShe staired at me and my whole being frozeShe was stunningly beautiful from her head to her toesMesmerized by her beauty , I was unable to speakI fell to my knees as my legs became weakWithout speaking a word , she had me in her spellThank God she was from heaven and not the pit of hellI asked her why she had came and revealed herself to meShe still remained in silence and pointed to a treeThen when she spoke her words made me tremble

“The tree that you see is a part of a symbol”

“Its branches reach out in all ways and directions”
“Yet each has a purpose , like a mirror has reflections”

“It dies for a season and seems useless and bare”
“Till the time comes to bloom and give life to the air”

“Each branch gives forth life as an extension of the tree”
“Each leaf that grows new has a purpose just like thee”

“You have died many seasons and live after each”
“As the changing of the chilling cold to the warm winds of the beach”

“So is life and the things we face, from our youth till old”
“Each time that you die inside , our lord restores your soul”

“The tree is you and its roots run deep”
“So continue to pray for your soul to keep”

“For Satan wishes to have your soul , wanting to sift you like wheat”
“Thats why we have come to you , to keep you on your feet”

“Just like the rain that feeds the tree”
“We feed your soul and give hope to thee”

“So stand your ground and ride out the storm”
“Your children are branches you have shaped and formed”

“The word is the soil that holds firm with sod”
“We are the keepers of the trees of God”

“Tell others to plant their roots good and deep”
“Tell others like you that their souls we will keep”

She then touched my hand and was gone from my sightI found myself standing in my room late at night.
