Angel

You were my glimpse of heaven,
a preview of eternity,
an angel in my midst.

There’s a ghost in my presence,
I feel you in my heart,
an apparition of hope.

But if I had to choose
between you and paradise,
I’d pick you in a heartbeat.

You’re everything
I ever dreamed about
and tonight you’re mine.

Tomorrow you’ll disappear,
but for now I want you here
your wings wrapped around me.
