From the crowds I saw your angelic silhouette
luminous and so unbelievably pure
a radiance that filled me with such a warmth
every fear and tension disappeared
even with the growing chanting angry crowd
the aroused mob getting loud!
Pushed from behind forced to fall on my knees
on seeking you once more
no longer there that vision of such loveliness
in contrast to the surroundings
what had been a peaceful and friendly protest
turned to violence and arrest!
A passer-by that found themselves in hand cuffs
forced into a police van
no matter what I said my words were ignored
transported to a nearby jail
yet that image sustained my calmness and grief
inside a growing belief!
Here certain for a purpose inside so strong
as I waited with many
to be booked in by the custody sergeant
she was here as well
then as our eyes focused just disappeared
this had become weird!
In the very spot stood a frightened woman
crying scared and dejected
going across to speak just to show support
we ended up in conversation
like me had been picked up just observing
Her brother amongst the demonstrators
who had been injured
trying to help him was arrested for affray
not knowing how badly hurt
could not get any news felt really dejected
in her domineer reflected!
The mission now clear to give you support
both wrongly accused
neither connected to the violent dispute
the girl then revealed
that she had briefly spoken to a radiant angel
who said it would be well!
That somebody will be with you for guidance
and hold your hand
smiling she was right me here by your side
a few hours later we left
no charges made to seek a brothers condition
distress now in remission!
They were brought together as total strangers
but left together as close friends!
The angelic figure watched them go satisfied
cupid had done her work!
