It came a long time ago.
When fields stretched for miles,
and not a home was in sight.
 
They came with hope,
then there were those
that came with greed.
 
The greed became a monster
wedged in their hearts.
A monster wanting what
belonged to others.
 
It took land from its
neighbors for pennies
on the dollar because
they were too weak to fight back.
 
Places where the monster
had touched with hunger,
the town’s gold disappeared.
 
The monster got hold
of the hearts of
the bankers,
the newspaper reporters,
the city politicians,
and those with badges
that showed
the light of day
but not the darkness
of their hearts.
 
The monsters took the
town from me
and my family,
without a cry of warning
from the town square.
 
The town was finally
destroyed by the monsters of greed.
The dreams and hopes
of earlier times
were no more.

The dream returned.
Angels returning in my dreams.
There was a sense of familiarity.
Intimate in nature, centered in comfort and peace.
I felt loved beyond time itself.
Never to feel lonely again.
Never to have fear again.
It seemed to be a connection,
between the two Angels.
A dark-headed Mother,
and a fair-headed daughter.
They both hugged me.
They stroked my face gently.
They both held me close to them.
It was with a great feeling of love,
that I felt when I awoke this morning.
Angels returning to me,
in the night,
to let me know,
that “Yes,” 
am I truly loved.

I seek not praise or adoration,
just the warmness of your touch.
A friendship that seeks not reward
nor return.
A connection of understanding
between these gulfs
that separate us as humans
from different times and places,
even though we have not lived the same.
Love that overcomes all barriers between us,
without fear,
without reprisal,
to continue into time without limit for us.
To finally find,
at some point ahead,
the binding of our souls,
that will never leave us,
alone again.
