Comforting Angel

He enters my dreams---
Bright-lit smiles in the night.
One little darling
I once held tight.
He giggles and runs
Young footsteps I hear---
Then to pause and say, "I love you"
"Don't shed the tears."
"For in the secret garden,
And meadows so green,
Are the most beautiful things
I have ever seen."
And as the beauty surrounds him
He runs off again;
He says, "I'll see you"
But he doesn't say when.
