"Angel Dream" as written by and Tom Petty....
I dreamed you,
I saw your face.
Cut my lifeline when drifting through space.

I saw an angel,
I saw my fate.
I can only thank God it was not too late.

Over mountains,
I floated away.
Cross an ocean,
I dreamed her name.

I followed an angel down through the gates.
I can only thank God it was not too late.

Sing a little song of loneliness,
Sing one to make me smile.
Another round for everyone,
I'm here for a little while.

Now I'm walkin'
This street on my own.
But she's with me
Everywhere I go.

Yeah, I found an angel,
I found my place.
I can only thank God it was not too late.
I can only thank God it was not too late.
I can only thank God it was not too late

    General CommentTom Raworth, Edward Sanders and Susie Timmons
    [paraphrased poetry]

    How could it be?
    Take my eyes!
    Oh colon, semicolon, comma!
    Suddenly the air is laughter
    Forget you know—and look at the world
    As far as the eye can see
    It was a wild world of words
    And everywhere
    The song of the wild lecture
    Arose above a wild lectern
    (Smug townies—who thought they could hog the keys to the sky …)

    There was the fact that a climate of lectures and rallies
    Can aid in the first rough forward step
    But rarely the second
    The joked how the ships brought the greenhorns to Rutgers Square
    As the moving vans took the radicals to Rome
    Wow! Look at these neat monsters on this cereal box!
    Wow! What great colors!

    On the walls—which are tough bandits
    Talking bricks
    What can you say about love
    Except it pisses me off
    Spinning top—you are beautiful
    In my arms
    When you rest …

    [This is about an angel?
    Yeah ...]

    My Opinionwhat in the hell did the last comment mean. this song is about the true love that was broken between him and his first wife. she will always be a part of him?
