Shelley Wynona Williams


Angel On Earth


There was an expression
that hit me from behind.
It brought me a warm feeling
and I knew it was kind.

I looked up with a smile
and the moment was sweet.
The person was thoughtful
and in many ways neat.

I would not complain
about the look in her eyes.
She reached out a hand
that caught me by surprise.

She gave me an envelope
with a treasure to keep.
When I read the words
it touched me down deep.

She wrote with much love
and her words were sincere.
The beauty inside her
was a light shining clear.

An angel on earth
taught me how to live.
She had heard about me
but was quick to forgive.

The words of a stranger
and the gift that she gave.
It brought me a smile
enough that it save.

I had been in darkness
with anger and hate.
The kindness she showed me
would change my own fate.

Inside I felt the love
that she had towards me.
It made me think nicer
about those that I see.

In a world of the hateful,
the empty and broken.
There are pure angels
who are kind and soft spoken.

They don't speak rudely
and they don't place blame.
Without a judging eye
they treat all just the same.

These angels of the heart
are not apt to speak.
They use their own hands
to build up the weak.

Where there is compassion
there are feelings of love.
So, let your light shine
like the angels above.
