As Goes the Angels



There was a bright star that burned first light because an Angel
was reborn into light.

For we that are left to see the results of your acts,
and for we that were
left who choose to see that you are.

An Angel, whether here on earth,
this is your claim and now you are fanning
on the eternal flame.

No! The waning of your generous ways
for those of us left in these orbital
days be what you have planned.

An Angel we did give back so we can see.
