Oh, Dear Angel – Come Back to Me!

John Gregory Evans © 2019

Arriving home late one night, appeared a gentleman from out of the darkness, from out of night,

His skin was dark, his face was bright, for he carried a smile of intended delight,

A thing was noticed within the course of this night, was that the gentleman was – politely polite.

I feared this man, in a sense or two –

But discovered his truth was a truth anew.

I doubted as Thomas, for fear rest in my heart,

I had a family to serve and the young man I served not.

I feared this man, in a sense or two –

But discovered his truth was a truth anew.

Though my heart and soul queried his appeal, an after thought remained as I closed the door –

And in a flash of an instant I realized I was wrong,

Went after the man, and discovered he was gone!

I feared this man, in a sense or two –

But discovered his truth was a truth anew.

And I stared and I thought, deep into the night –

Was he my angel to travel with in a year of countless lights?

Oh, Dear Angel – Come Back to Me Now where there remains no more fright.

I feared this man, in a sense or two –

But discovered his truth was a truth anew.

Poetry is truth as we share our words that express our stories. I have been writing poetry over twenty years and have been published within many venues, including two books of mine. As poets we speak our truths and become known by our words. If you are a poet...keep writing. There remains joy and love in the solace of the written word.

  1. This reminds me of the story about Abraham and Sarah’s hospitality to strangers that they did not know were angels. Many a times, I think opening our doors is easy. But when the time comes, it’s easier said than done. I wonder if re-opening the door after their departure makes a difference though. For all we have to do is learn.
    Awesome piece!!!!

    1. Thanks T! You are awesome! I agree we do entertain angels and do not even know it. This is why I sense and believe hospitality to yes even strangers must be an imperative. Thanks much for your very valued comment.
