Angels All Around Us

There are angels who sit quietly

and whisper when we need comfort.

There are those who breathe life into us

when we are breathless.

There are angels who fill us with gracious support

when our souls become fragile,

and those who kiss us goodnight for a peaceful slumber.


There are angels that touch us with sacred laughter

when tears become a burden.

There are those who wrap their wings around us

and rock us until the ache in our heart disappears.


There are angels that can send us flying with wonder

when our hope begins to fade,

and those who devote everything to give us

everlasting peace in heaven.
