Her Aged Angel Face

By Larry Ray Hafley


Her aged, angel face,

Lined with heaven’s grace,

Gazed sadly at her love

Who lay asleep

In his pain so deep.


A lifetime of memories,

Photos of the mind,

Left her sad eyes Mournful and blind

With fearful tears

Which trickled o’er years

And through the skies.


No words came;

So, her anguish went untold,

But when an unspeakable groan

Escaped her soul

Her needs by heaven were known.


We clasp her close,

While unseen hosts

Held her tender and near.

Gently they bound her again

To him who is her life’s cheer.


And so she found peace

And without a bitter trace,

A loving smile gave sweet grace

To her aged, angel face.
