The Archangels thoughts

Heather Lydia Thornhill 1981 (Manchester)

The mind blocks
But the Archangel still clocks on
He is in many places
Not merely one
He's listened for eons
Without taking many breaks
That's many a year
With hardly a mistake
To people communing
And thinking behind here
He knows every pitch
Every placement of thought
He's heard most answers
They cannot not be caught
He cares that you dropped them
So gently without doubt
And he gathers them in legions
Without making him shout
So he knows how to love you
In all that you do, however
He merely expects that you love him back too
His true thoughts on your light might bring you to tears
If he poured them out directly for just you to hear
Consider the thoughts of a single soul
Times it by a million
And an Archangel is known
