Ascending Glowing Spirits

I saw his callus arthritic hand caress her sweet lined face,

And I heard him whisper: “My Darling, another time and place,

we are born in this old world not winning the death race.”

Her wrinkled face---wet with tears,

The abundance of dampness seemed to erase the lines and years,

Standing next to his dying bed, he left her without any fears.

When his glowing spirit rose above the old body no longer needed,

Now a youthful body with hair growing where preciously receded,

Reached out to her and smiled as coaching was unneeded.

Their afterglow stayed awhile as their spirits faded away,

To live in another time and another day,

Will this ending be for all---or was it just their way?

Love every moment of life---I faintly heard the words---

that ascended from the ground,

Infinitesimally sounds which echoed all around,    

The two shimmering Angels were upward bound.

I will never tell what happened on that day,

Because I wait my turn for a love to come my way,

And, love me like he did her so long ago---I pray.
