Angels

I asked the angels to look over you
To shield you with their wings
Like a dying rose withers and a sinner has sinned
Both entering the darkness… both beginning an end
So then I asked the angels to shield you with their wings

I prayed to the heavens to stop your tears of pain
Like a silent warrior they cannot be seen
Your tears are flowing like rain
You've tried to cover them with laughter
So then I asked the angels to please
Please shield you with their wings
And to take away your pain

I wished on the stars to keep you safe
Away for the darkness devouring life, away from evil
Corruption and hate
Your soul pure and your heart more beautiful
Than when an angel sings
Once again I asked the angels to shield
You with their wings

Now there will come a time when you feel
The presence of nothing
There will come a time when you feel that you're falling
There will come a time that you feel your angel has fallen
Fallen from broken wings

I will not ask the heavens and I will not ask upon the stars
But never fear an angel will not be far
Do not fear the darkness nor solitude when it sings
For I will be your angel and I will shield you with my wings

Someone once said to me,
'I never felt the presence of an angel'
Look into the heart and soul of your true friends
And there you will find angels shielding
You with their wings
