Secret Angels

     I’m late! I’m late! For a very important date…..Not really, just having a little trouble getting started this morning..

     Anyway, have you ever met, or at least heard of, those special people, usually “perfect” strangers, who seem to know exactly what to do in a serious situation or just happen, to be in the right place at the right time, to save a life or provide assistance to someone in need? “Angels of Mercy” so to speak..This is a new poem dedicated to those who have been gifted with that “spirit”. Thank God for them!

     Have a fine and fascinating Friday,

Jake.  

They walk amongst us.

Secret Angels

On golden wings

with halos bright,

the artists had decreed.

That angels fly

from Heaven’s gate

when e’er we pray in need.

 *

Yet, not all depart

from Heaven’s fold,

but all, are Heaven sent.

“How can that be”

I hear you ask,

“what by that statement’s meant?”

That angels walk

amongst us now,

and even they don’t know,

what power lies,

within their soul.

Their wings, not there for show.

Earthly born

some angels are,

and appear as you and I.

Though far above

the likes of us,

came not, from Heaven’s sky.
