Twelve Years


He searched for those wings that he knew
that this angel should have at her back.
And although he can’t find them
he really don’t mind
because he knows they’ll grow back.
And he reaches for that halo that he knows
that she had when she first caught his eye.
Although his hand came back empty
he’s really not worried
because he knows it still shines.

I can’t promise that I’ll grow those wings
or keep this tarnished halo shining
but I’ll never betray your trust
angel mine.


-- from the song Angel Mine by Cowboy Junkies

Happy 12 years, my love!
