My Angel

a throwback, for a friend

 

I never knew

I had an angel following me,

day by day

every step she’d mimic–

I turn around,

she disappears.

 

“Who are you?”

I’d scream, silently agitated

with every passing minute

 

Until she found me,

lonely on the stair.

“Why so sad,” she asked

and suddenly, I knew she cared.

 

She’d been on my path

from the beginning,

patiently protecting and guiding,

unknowingly saving me

from my own shadow.
