Invisible Protection

From afar I watched you fall

Watched the crimson unfurl

Inch by inch, down your leg it crawled

I saw your world begin to swirl

Made a random stranger make the call

There when the ambulance lights began to whirl

Listening as emergency sirens sing

At the same time the IV went into your wrist

I felt the thorns pierce my down wing

Just know that by this you’d be sorely missed

Even if you can’t see a single thing

The breeze upon your cheek is an angel’s kiss

And you fell, you fell

You’re falling

Down, down


I caught you
