of An Angel
"Sometimes I feel
like living in the sky
Where a beautiful angel whispers on my ear,
'Look and you will see inside your eye
All the beauty, and pain, and sorrow and fear'.
Sometimes the angel's voice echoes in my mind
As a reality which confounds me in a way so
'Cause all these thoughts make me feel so blind
For they can never seem to be the way they are.
But in the middle of all these confusions
I can even hear a bell that cheerfully rings
An angel, so pretty, invades my illusion.
And makes me happy, and makes me sing.
But again it echoes on my heart the voice
That I can still regret and make the choice."
(From the Ninth Symphony and "The Messiah")
