Sleeping Angel

An eagle flew to me and said,
“I saw your friend today as I rose on warm currents beneath my wings.
As the tallest trees shrank below me I entered the clouds, the home of the Angels,
The realm of warmth and pure gold from the Sun.

“There she lay, safe, serene, curled up snugly in a bed of tranquillity.
The softness of the cotton wool cloud moulded to her lovely form,
Her sweet head resting upon a downy pillow of Angels feathers,
And draped over her lay a golden blanket of morning mist,
The sunlight sparkles and pearly moonbeams glowing from within,
Scattering a halo of warmth and comfort all around her.

“Wrapped in her peaceful dream like the tender arms of a caring lover,
Her laughing lips now smiled silently at the joyfulness of her pleasant restful sleep.
The merest touch of a heavenly breeze
Brushing a lock of her golden hair from her bright eyes
Quietly closed in slumber.

“The sunlight filtered through the wispy fleecy whorls,
Bathing her pretty face in pastel rainbows,
Beauty surrounding beauty.
Softly a host of glorious Angels sang sweet lullabies nearby,
And hushed me as I flew too near.

“‘Please do not awaken her,
She is our dear sister returned home to us.
While she sleeps
Her dreams reach out to surround the world with Light,
And while she dreams
She is blessing the world with Love and Healing.
As she holds her precious world close to her heart
She restores peace to the hearts of the lonely and the lost,
Creates hope in those who have never felt soft saving hands beneath their souls.’

“As the Angels spoke their tears fell to earth.
‘Allow her to sleep’, they cried,
‘For her dreams are Truth and Love,
And her dreams are the inspiration of Life.’”
