My Angel by Gary R. Hess

"My Angel" is a love poem about the hardships I have been going through. My life was changing and seemingly only getting worse; however, an angel came and took my hand, pulled me to safety and helped me start a new life together with her.

My Angel
by 

Streaming through the river,
gliding, sliding a raft along
Rocks more abundant
Rapids becoming worse

Losing hope as the river hisses
Losing hope as noon approaches

She grabs my hand and pulls ashore
my raft: battered
my mind: frozen
my eyes: weakened
and my heart: bruised

she gathers my things
as we head off to the unknown
Together
