Angel

This poem appears in MOSAIC. It is one of my most requested poems at readings.

 

Our little angel's fallen

From the heaven we created

Since we built her wings
 
Of steel and flesh and bone
 
 

It looks as though she's chosen to fly
 
A little lower than we'd hoped
 
Though now we know
 
Her wings have always been too heavy
 
And heaven was never her home anyway
