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.

  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.
