Angels Guide The Way


Sometimes we are lucky to receive guidance from above
and it can come in any form but always filled with love
It is usually a person who appears when you're deplete
they stay around and guide your way until you find your feet

Sometimes its an animal who knows just what to do
a cat or dog who stays to teach and guide the human through
it isn't that its obvious and problems will remain
but this angel stays to guide you through the tough terrain

Angels have tasks which are manifold
and they'll place themselves in the way
of harm just so that we may learn
how to keep love safe and make way

Angel's come in many forms but never make it known
to do the tasks they have been set so start out all alone
An Angel will find a way to teach you how to love and care
And when an Angel leaves this realm his love and heart stay there.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
