without wings

in the afternoon sun
arms outstretched
you sweetly soared
through the april breeze
a smile bright,
your heart in flight
my angel
without wings
on high from days delight
to sleep you'd fight
unless someone
would cuddle beside you
soon a gentle snore
i held your hand
listed to you breathe
and listened to you
breathe some more
i watched you lay
smooth face on the pillow
curls like clouds
sleeping angel
where did you leave
your wings
