my earthly Angel

.
.
and how could it be…
.
hearing only her laughter, singing
.
the melody of my every dashed Hope, raining
.
down in sparks and chords
.
.
from soaring skies so high above my broken life,
.
swirling past faceless strangers
.
in anonymous rooms. if
.
there were other voices to hear that night
.
.
these ears never heard them, and if
.
there were other eyes to see,
.
mine never met them. and if
.
there is a steady hand
.
.
coloring summer days from despair, the
.
perfect cosmic hand was dealt us that night,
.
a royal flush of Kings and Queens,
.
of hearts and diamonds,
.
.
of fateful serendipitous
.
milliseconds
.
between the lost..
.
or found.
.
.
.
to Scout, my earth Angel
Happy 13th Valentine’s Day
