Poetry of John Shaw

      Angel Visit


      I was visited by an angel last night
      one that was warm and bright like firelight
      bearing gifts of art and song to lift mine up along out of
      harms way as tightly I held her
      and as today begins another day of bright glorious colors
      each for me to find a new
      I must thank my angel for lifting me out of the blue

      and so this time we end up friends
      so it ends and begins one more time
      with such a fine line drawn between us
      and a good time was had by all, I suppose
      and we are left to count our blessings
      and be grateful things came to pass as they did
      I am
      it's not the whole story, but just the same
      I am
