Do not fear when you see me near
Though some call me the angel of the night
In truth I'm thee angel of light
I come to dispel the darkness
Rest your tried head upon my shoulder
As I carry you softly away
All your troubles will cease
No more tears or pain will you know
Sorrows will no longer be..
They'll of seemed to of been fantasies
Gently I'll cradle you in my arms
While I sing you to sleep...
So sleep my child in blissful peace
I'll awaken you in time..
Promise wonders of wonders you'll find
For I'm thee angel of truth and light
And so like the sandman am I

something more... please...
kinda reminds me of a sarah maclachlan song... you know, i think this theme has been a little overdone in the world of poetic writing. maybe you could make the angel belch a flock of neon-green butterflies, or something?

Nicely written. On the 10th stanza;
{They'll of seemed to of been fantasies}
I would have wrote it this way, but I like it that way also. {They'll have seemed to be fantasies}. Nevertheless, I loved it.
well done.
