Example - An Angel Spoke To Me Today by Michael Walker

An angel spoke to me today
But what she said I cannot say
Though my mind's eye strives to replay
It slips away, it slips away

I know she came into my room
And lifted me from pain and gloom
To see the beauty of the moon
But gone too soon, but gone too soon

Her words they flowed like honey spun
From the rays of the ling'ring sun
And when the whole affair was done
I was at one, I was at one

An angel spoke to me today
And what she taught I still replay
For all the blacks, and browns, and grays
Have gone away, have gone away
