petite delight angels
your light is magnificent
like bedtime story wrapped in lullaby
but inside the glass cage
of countless days imprisoned
freedom then perished, broken over time
wings start to fall, consumed
and pain is beyond mended
no longer a bewitching dancing lights
the soul at last conclude
that time has been suspended
old lullaby will soon exit the night
