Kaleidoscope Online | Angels on High: Maryza Sage



The angels drift down from above

Cognizant that you have called

Finally for their help


They descend

Only too glad to be of service


They arrive

You doubt

They leave

Until you believe again



Ever so gently,

And peacefully,

They re-descend from their place on high

To your ever-present call

For their help in this worldly time


They survive

Your doubts and worries

They create and orchestrate

An end to your misery

and your hopeless tears of regret


They continue

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.
