"Touched by an Angel"

My worst fears have come to light

I am unable to continue

To go on…

 

Afraid and alone

Once again

I am on my own…

 

The pain and frustration

The anger and the helplessness

My feelings begin to overflow…

 

I am filled with self pity

Unable to be released

And…Suddenly…

 

I emerge

Down on my knees

I pray…

 

Asking for assistance

For help to show me the way

For a friend…

 

Someone came, stronger, more capable than I

Someone to speak with

Someone who really cares…

 

I am shown the way - But,

I fight hard

Still unable to understand…

 

Always the adversary, and

Slowly - Ever so slowly

I let go…

 

Releasing my doubts, I listen for once

And hear the spoken words

I have become a believer…

 

Because I have been

Touched by an angel

And, I will never be the same…
