An Angel in Boots


What I saw was all in my head,
A vision all blurred, in the color red.
Passion filled with all that is right,
Love based options throughout the night

I keep seeing boots in my vision red,
I keep hearing words that are not really said.
My eyes distracted by the beauty before me,
Enhanced feelings of love devour me.

Lady lay waiting on a floating bed,
wearing only cowboy boots of the color red.
A vision of beauty, of love, and of peace,
A vision of an angel, heaven released.

Red cowboy boots and an angle of love,
sent from the heavens so far above.
Cleary a sign that I am lonely and blue,
and that I need someone who will love me true.

    Well, what can I tell you my friend? In dealing with a few Angels on this Earth and with quite a few devils as well, I can only tell you that those precious moments I spent with the Angels, I can't still forget and are now vividly reflected in my poems. Keep it up! Thank you for sharing! 10+++ God Bless You! Love and Peace for always! Romeo from New York City! ... (Report) Reply
