The angels drift down from above
Cognizant that you have called
Finally for their help
Only too glad to be of service
Until you believe again
Ever so gently,
They re-descend from their place on high
To your ever-present call
For their help in this worldly time
Your doubts and worries
They create and orchestrate
An end to your misery
and your hopeless tears of regret
To be by your side
Minding all the times
That you thought they had forgotten you
They have not been still nor forgotten
Your needs and your desires
They are here once more upon your calling
To help you with your issues and problems
Be thankful that you have an arsenal
Of help by your side.
