Angels come and angels go
but they’re always watching down upon us.
They carefully observe,
they take care of us,
although distance may be a factor.
Their wings caress,
though invisible they may be
to the naked human eye
they are there,
and the angels’ hearts
for us, beat freely.
They insist on being caregivers,
they are there in all times,
mothers, uncles, daughters,
those who do or have walked along
our path of life.
And there’s no use wondering
if and when we will see one,
you’ve likely already seen a few.
The woman down your street,
who smiles at you with such warmth
within her eyes,
your teacher who lauds your efforts in school,
motivates and attends,
making a difference in your daily life.
Your passed grandmother who you swear
you sometimes smell her signature perfumed scent,
that kindness in your chest when you recall the times
spent together –
weren’t they the best?
Angels above and angels on land,
here to love and be guides
for all of us.
They pride themselves on being here,
making the most of their missions,
they are wise and knowing,
understanding what it is we need,
ensuring our lives are enriched and continually growing.
