Your Angel

‘An imperfect soul of a perfect friend’, this poem was inspired by a guardian angel of mine.

Angels as protectors and friends

When I was a kid, I have understood angels as protectors and friends of small children. I've read in story books that an angel weeps whenever a child assigned to him commits something bad.

Angels from heaven are known for their good deeds, but as a true friend, we may wonder if there is such an angel who can also do bad things for a friend?

My poem 'Your Angel' was written in memory of an imperfect angel of mine.

Your Angel

Guide and protector of the lost,
she is patient and kind.
Your true friend till the end.

She who whispers the noble acts,
and sobs at your mischief.
An angel of pure love.

She keeps you secure from your foes.
With her comforting wings,
you are safe beyond reach.

Alas, white wings turn into black,
as enemies get close.
Ready to fight for you.

She is willing to be cast out,
to fill her hands with filth.
And live her life with lies.

An angel of light turning dark,
damned for her broken pact.
Your friend without a flaw.
