An Angel’s Cry

pen inks … On future’s cry
tear drops… from angel’s eye

When bosoms cramp and sigh
A wish to leap on heaven’s high

With a broken wing, stands in pain
Soaked and dredged from every rain

Lost… locked out insane
A soul in deep disdain

Alone quivering, yet goes on seeking
On a shade… from a shadow, glaring

From within…inner whispers wonder
A wound bleeding, as mind does ponder

Still looks… In every glimpse of day
Comes empty… Like a sun’s dimming ray

Now an angel sent a moaning wail
To lift the spirit from a body’s frail

Consoling with tears and pains won’t be forever
For angels are never meant for this world to suffer
