Where All Rivers Lead


Where All Rivers Lead

An angel came into my life
and showed me how to shine
She had a heart of gold,
much too gold for mine
A second angel found me
Taught true love and pain
A storm of  poisoned passion
that left just as it came
A third angel came to heal,
journeyed through my needs
but couldn’t find the starving ones
longing to be freed
A fourth angel blessed me
I saw my calling in her soul
Took up residence there
Alas, my heart grew cold
A fifth angel came
with poetry and lust
She possessed my craving senses,
but that was all it was
A sixth angel landed
With beautiful designs
A champion of love,
sadly not of mine
Finally, the seventh angel came to me
With clipped wings scars
She’d survived the trails of Hell
If only had my heart
I took to a distant land
of the Rising Sun
I found some sanctuary there
Still yet to find the one
The angels could be cruel 
but gave me fuel to burn
I’m as alone as I have ever been
But  stronger, older, learned
No longer am I drowning
in such shallow streams
I’m sailing triumphantly, at full mast
where all the rivers lead
