A Question

Ehsan Sehgal

An angel landed at my thoughts
And entered into my heart
very quickly, very silently
I didn't realise first
When I felt the existence of
I was filled with glorious love
It was a wonderful feeling
That began to heal all my grief and pain
But unfortunately
The angel left me a same way
As came very quickly, very silently
Since I have a question in my mind
Can such thing do an angel
Leaving a heart to hurt much more
That was already hurt by people
