About the Poem

I wrote "Angel" after seeing a friend I hadn't seen for a couple of weeks. This is one I can talk to about anything. I did have them in mind when I wrote it, although I'm not sure if they are my "angel" quite yet.


A spirit, a beacon
To shine through the night
To guide you to safety
through many a plight;
And sounding through your darkness
Clear as a bell
The voice of the person
Who is your angel.
A rose, 'midst the weeds
Of grief and of pain
Reminding you that someday
Things will be all right again,
And like hot chocolate
On a chill winter day
They warm up your soul
And spirit all the way,
Someone chosen just for you
Above all the rest
For this is the one
who can do the job best
To pierce through your darkness
And spread warmth and light
A reminder of beauty
Setting sorrow to flight
You have been chosen
And also have they
To be each other's angels
And guide through life's way.

It brought tears of understanding to me, I had always promissed my mom I wouls always be there for her. Oct.3,01 Mom called & wanted me to come over,(To be our day). My Mom passed in my arms, I couldnt stop looking at her beautiful peaceful face, "I keap my word".
