    ~repost~


    At first I thought if I could just hold you
    gently, ever so gently, in the palm of my hand ~ I wouldn't crush your wings...
    perfect as the sky at sunset, you endured my growing obsession with your smile ~ the way I basked in your glow ~
    it became apparent that there would come a time when your treasures could not be kept a secret... vast are your wonders, beautiful are your ways

    and I thought, if I could just have you for a few moments longer ~ the force of my longing and my need, and yea, my LOVE for you, would keep you here ~

    But the phonies wouldn't stop phoning, and the press kept 'pressing'...and the fans just kept on fanning themselves before you...groping blindly toward your light...your heat

    and I knew I could not hide you...

    my world...our world exposed

    you belong to something greater

    and I opened my hands and closed my eyes
    as you flapped your beautiful seraph wings...

    I hope you won't forget me or our time together...

    fly, my angel

    the universe is calling you

    It is a priveilege to be able to share an angel (especially a child)
    with the world. Oh that more of us were in that position...blessing the world with an angel.

    Beautiful piece Alyce. Thank you.

    i didn't quite understand at first
    but joyce made it clear...
    one day we must set them free
    and find comfort that we have
    raised them in the way that they
    will never depart from...
    bless you and your family.

    Oh my...

    [size=huge]Ms. A, I'm at a complete
    loss for words. I 'felt'
    this one in every sense
    of the word.
