A Heavenly Soul
You came unto me quite unexpected,
A white winged angel in earthly disguise.
Our paths crossed by chance as I walked a lonely street.
The tattered clothes you wore failed to hide your elegance.
Your demeanour though simple,
Reflected a grace in days gone by.
Your tear-stained face sad but still exotic,
Heartbroken and bruised, still pure, and sincere.
A man of words abundant; tongue tied I stood mesmerised.
My instant yearning, to blend our hearts into one,
Give your beautiful heart a home, to share with mine.
You feared not my presence, calmly you walked beside me,
Where did you come from; where are you going, I asked?
You just smiled weakly, a smile that said more than words.
I continue to walk with you, help you heal what was broken,
Mend your broken wings and set you free to fly.
I sure will miss your heartbeat, beating next to mine,
But your journey is your own; stay true to your soul.
My path is that of solitude, the lone wolf walks alone,
I pause to lend a hand to a soul in need, then I will be gone.
Do not try to understand me, for I am an illusion in time,
There when in need, but no longer when the need is done.
Though our paths fail to last, our encounter I will remember,
The sweet heavenly soul, that came from deep within the dark.
