On a lovely night by a crackling fire
The heat unable to penetrate the biting air
Shivering on the outside covering a numb heart within
I stare at the wilderness that never seems to end
And there they come ever so bright
The glimmering lights from within the dark
Bouncing towards me to stay by my side
To give me their warmth on that silent night.
Tired and drawn by the battles raging,
More the ones within then the swords clashing
I withdraw my defenses wanting no more
Lower my head ready to receive the blow
When the come to me as timely as ever
Forming the shield that provides my cover
Reminding me with just a single look in the eye
It was never my battle for me to choose to die.
Stranded I stand with a million choices in hand
Desperately seeking to find my golden path
My vision blurring with spiraling thoughts
As the setting sun brings on the onset of the night
They come to me yet again, as always
My angels in disguise to guide me through
Through the shrubs and thorny ways
They hold my hand and ease the pain.
They are my angels and I love them so
My angels through the night of joy and sorrow
Angels sent by God, for me alone
To stay by my side and hold me close.
