Why Angels Sing

The muscles tighten in my face
and tears come to my eyes -
each time I think of how you hurt
or hear your helpless cries.
 
You know if I could help you out,
I'd stop your pain today.
I'd use my little magic wand
to whisk them all away.
 
But if my magic wand was broke,
I'd buy them all with cash -
and then I'd torch each single one
and turn them into ash.
 
But if I couldn't burn them up
I'd open up your heart -
I'd take your sorrows- all of them -
and tear them all apart.
 
But if I couldn't tear them up
then I'd go to great length -
to throw your burdens off a cliff,
with every ounce of strength.
 
But if I wasn't strong enough
I'd haul them, height and breadth -
then watch them all splash overboard
into the ocean's depth.
 
But if your burdens didn't sink,
I'd work for many years -
right along beside you where
I'd kiss away your tears.
 
But if I couldn't dry your tears
I'd wish beyond degree -
that all your hurts would melt away
until you're bright with glee.
 
More tears go streaking down my cheeks.
I see you in great pain -
and now I've proven I can't help.
My work is all in vain.
 
Oh, how it saddens me to know
that I can't do a thing.
Yet God can heal your broken heart -
and that's why angels sing...
 
So smile awhile and lift your voice -
a voice so filled with love!
For those who hate will wallow here -
as you ascend above!

louis gander,  

I cannot believe that you ever had hate. These lines I wrote for the deceivers and manipulators who hurt others. After all you've been through, I'm happy that you're happy :) Enjoy the rolling hills, the beautiful butterflies, the rainbow of colors in the flowers
