A Poem By An Aphasia Activities Center Member

Like An Angel Flying By the Clouds

In your eyes

I think I finally see

My future looking straight at me

Sensitive is your soul

So can we sink into each other

Heaven knows

My life was out of control

You touched me with your sensitive soul

Like an angel passing clouds


Sweetness you give to me

Kindness is all I see

Romance I will bring to thee

Can I dance even in your dreams

So grab my wings

Like an angel flying by the clouds


See I know there is fear

But I’ll show you and say

The things you want to hear

I’ll whisper in your ear

In my arms there’s a safety zone

So grab my wings

Like an angel flying by the clouds


Tell me what do you feel

In the cold of the night
