Angels and Ghosts


By: Minorie Lanag

the ghost will come with the sunrise
to take the angel's fears and make her wise;
to protect her and keep all pain away
to guard her from this world's ways.

the ghost will come with the moonlight
to show her the stars and be her light;
to make her feel warm in the cold of night
to take away the darkness' fright.

an angel she is, to the ghost that cares
to the rest, she is just someone who dares;
to live, love, laugh, long, and learn
with this, the angel, a ghost she earned.

just a ghost he may be to all
to the angel, he is her protective wall;
a ghost, she can't hug and kiss
but the ghost she can love and miss.

this angel that is so hurt
may cry and again be hurt
and if she does, she won't fear
because there's a ghost so near

who will wipe those tears and whisper, "it's ok"...

  1. Minorie this piece is condensed with metaphors. Now I'm beginning to think who's the real amateur here.
