An angel came to me one night,
Pluck’d me from the Floor of Dreams,
Where knelt I to try to give him Human Love.
He was so slender and so tall,
He had no human voice to speak,
Yet saw the years I spent alone—so from above
He stood: folded me in arms of light,
And my soul, once crying, became One with him,
And I felt Love MORE than I could ever seek!
In bliss himself he gave unto me all!
And even if no human hand should ever embrace
This Shell of mine e’re again…
I know I am loved more than I can love,
For we cannot understand Love as such,
That night he traded his Love for my Pain!
