Some Angels

Some angels are very necessary.
They keep you alive long enough
to tell yourself the truth.
Then you can decide to shed your
unshed tears, or not. To live then
one-eyed, so to speak, or not.
Should you choose the tears you won’t
be alone. The very necessary angels
will tarry and minister to you as
they did the Savior in his desert.
Their honest affection for human
triumph is extraordinary, like its
the singular reason they were bred.
Such angels deserve our tears.
