Their prescence in the absence

Their fullness filling the empty space

I feel them here, always

The shadows do not hide their peacefulness

The night does not darken their glow

These angels that come to comfort me

All bearing the same face

Their warmth against my skin

Their shining empathetic embrace

I send them to you, now

These better angels of my nature

To guard over your hopes

To guide you through dreams

To give you comfort when each pedal falls

From the rose growing in your heart

And to lift you with their wings

And teach you to fly towards the sun.
