The Visitor



A ray of light so strong
It felt as though
I'd been struck fiercely by a bolt of sun

I can but gaze, upon this powerful

gentle fiery flame

I stand bewildered  
touched by a vision so bright

although weakened by blindness
a presence of wings in sight
I am aware of such beauty
and gracious divine light

created just for a moment
Heaven has fallen to Earth

Never will I understand
yet I do believe in this wondrous being

this magnificent brightness disappears

and in ecstasy

I stand and gaze

I've been touched by an angel today.

      You mean you have been touched by an angel AGAIN. :-) But you certainly know how to put those lines together.....

        I've read that we all have a Guardian Angel and that they have been with us since before we were born. And when our physical body dies, our Angel will carry us to Heaven. I too am a firm believer in Guardian Angels. Great write Teddy, ; ) AP
