Richard Schnap- A Poem


First came the angel of awakening
The morning sun gleaming in his eyes
To release me from dreams of darkness
And ignite the candle in my soul

Then came the angel of learning
Who taught me the languages of life
Where words might have different musics
But whose meanings are always the same

Next came the angel of exploring
With an unmarked map in his hand
Bidding me to seek destinations
To find one to call my home

And last came the angel of forgetting
To help me to say farewell
As a door in the sky was opened
Where a new world was waiting for me
