When I was alone,
Reliving scenes from shattered dreams-
You came to comfort me
And help mend the broken seams.
When I was angry,
And couldn’t convince myself to be calm
You were there,
Your presence, your words a healing balm.
When, in my confusion,
I could not find a place to start-
You were there to tell me
The answer was in my heart.
When I was down,
You gave me a brass angel to snuff out a candle’s light.
You told me it carried a horn both to extinguish the flame
And to announce the coming of one more bright.
Yes, a new life has come,
One that’s brighter than before-
A new life that without you, my friend,
May never have been born.
