Child of Heaven

An angel came

Within twilight night

Her essence set aglow

Within spirit light

She hovered above

A quiescent child

Nodding her head

She slowly smiled

Her arms enveloped

This infant with love

Warming quintessence

For journey above

Bursting into scene

I cried, “don’t go away”

She nodded her head

In translucent array

Closing her astral eyes

She began to transcend

Tears fell on my cheek

Starting to comprehend

My child must go away

Upon an angelic arm

She will tend passageway

Never feeling any harm

Ache encompasses me

As I lay in mourn

For a child of heaven

Has now been born
