Fifteen Hundred Angels – Titanic Remembered
One Hundred Years – 15 April 1912 – 15 April 2012

Fifteen Hundred Angels came down that Night
To guide all those who drowned in the Sea
Precious Cargo wrapped in Wings held Tight
Comforting with their Love those set Free
In icy waters of dark velvet deep
There, their fleshy bodies to keep
Fifteen Hundred Entombed
Within that velvet Womb

Survivors torn away from their Kin
Wretched, empty, alone in Grief
The World shocked like it had never been
Mourning with them in disbelief

Fifteen Hundred escorted in Wings of White
Looked down upon their flesh in that Place
On that ship as they travelled into the Light
Their Souls reached down to kiss the Face
Of a loved One, a Child, a Wife, a Friend
Caress a cheek, brush aside a fresh Tear
Then whisper to them, “Tis not the End”
When it is your Time you need not fear
Fifteen Hundred Angel Wings shall embrace
Our souls Heart to Heart & Face to Face
