God's Perfect Angel


God's Perfect Angel

Last night I saw an Angel
  looking down at me,
She peered through tearful eyes
  that twinkled radiantly.
Her skin looked alabaster
  beneath fan wisped satin hair.
I tried to look right past her,
  as if she wasn't there.

Her wings were like a dove's wings,
  white and shoulder high,
Attached to the middle of her back,
  they hung below her thigh.
She wore a sheer flowing gown
  that sort of rippled in a wind,
A colorful floral crown sat perched
  majestically upon her head.

She looked as if she knew me,
  her questions went unsaid.
Her stare went right through me
  as she floated above my bed.
She hovered like a cloud,
  her visage was quite serene,
It was like some ghostly shroud
  you'd see on a movie screen.

She looked faintly familiar,
  her face I was sure I'd seen.
She looked like a Fairy Princes,
  a celestial virgin Queen.
I thought I heard her whisper,
  only her lips never came apart.
I couldn't decipher the message
  she tried desperately to impart.

Then I heard faint music
  and her voice rose gradually,
The two blended together
   in perfect harmony.
Then a chorus of Angels
   joined the sing-along.
All their voices soon converged
   into an a capellic song.

Their words were hard to muster,
   their voices were not clear.
The melody was kind of eerie,
   a gothic, chant-like cheer.
The Angel then put her hands together
   as if in silent prayer.
The room was so eerily quiet,
  I wasn't sure she knew I was there.

Was this all a hypnotic muse?
  Something seemed so wrong.
A self-conceived nightmare
   where I did not belong?
The music slowly faded
   as her eyes began to tear.
Her vision seemed to waver
   then slowly disappear.

The Angel then turned to vapor
   as the fan wisped her away,
There seemed to be no rational point
  in asking her to stay.
My room smelled a little musty,
   a slight coolness filled the air.
I layed there for a little while,
   then bowed my head in prayer.

Had all this been an hallucination? 
   Was my mind playing tricks on me?
Or was this some divine revelation
   that God wanted me to see?
When I woke the next morning
   it all seemed like a dream,
I searched around everywhere
   for proof of what I'd seen.

In my mind I questioned
   whether it was truly real or fake,
It sure didn't feel like an illusion.
   I swear I was awake.
As I got prepared for work,
   I turned on the T.V. set.
I searched and found the morning news,
  and the lead story said,

A little girl had just been found,
   initially feared for dead.
Her mouth and limbs had been bound,
   a bag was over her head.
Someone mysteriously phoned in a tip,
   they'd left an anonymous word,
Authorities were precisely lead
  to a place where strange music had been heard.

As they entered the chamber of horrors
  where the young girl was kept,
She was found unharmed, though very scared,
  while upstairs her captor slept.
The room was cool and musty,
   a slight vapor filled the air,
They searched for the source of the music
   but couldn't find it anywhere.

They flashed the young girls picture,
   she'd been missing for days it seemed,
Suddenly I was struck with awe
   as I looked at the television screen.
For I knew at that very moment
   that my vision was not a dream.
There in technicolor was God's Perfect Angel,
   the one that I had seen.

That sent chills through me. I believe in angels and have even seen one. The brightest sphere of light I ever saw. She gave me the strength to be able to help someone who had a terrible wound. I told him jokes as the Dr stapled and stitched away. There was so much blood, but from that point on it doesn't bother me. The angel gave me strength to do what I needed to.
