Leaving my fears and tears behind

In the darkness I can see my fears
Wasting no time, hunting me down.
Something eager to feed on my tears
Is closing in on me.

As I go through my mind
Searching for an answer
I suddenly see out the corner of my eye
A blinding light flowing toward me.

From the light walks an angel
With a loving smile on his face;
As his beautiful blue eyes pierce into my soul
He stretches forth his hefty arms.

I cannot help but follow the sweet sound of his voice
As he calls out my name.
I feel the blood rushing through my veins
As my still body gets nearer this wonderful sight.

He then expands his large feathered wings
Holding me tight to his soft muscular chest.
He slowly lifts his head to the inviting sky
And delicately takes off aiming for the stars
Leaving my fears and tears behind.
