Grandma’s bedtime stories
of fairies and angels heard ages ago,
seem to get silently carried forward through ages.
Don’t they? Like the one,
in which, god sends his angels down
to a pure heart, suffering…in pain.
The ethereal souls in long robes,
flapping their man-size wings, arrive
with an aura of love and compassion,
Very softly, almost stealthily, they wipe off
the tears of pain from the sad eyes
and put a smile of cheer back
on the parched lips,
and then, vanish in the thin air.
Hey, why not play the god’s angel
to someone today!
Make a sad soul happy
and feel the divine bliss in return!
