Best Poem of Richard Steele

'My Angel'

Before you came into my life, I was struggling and going through strife.

I did not feel like I could go on, I no longer felt strong.

But then you came, soaring into my heart as an angel without wings.

I am glad that you are so much a part, of my life.

you helped me when depression cut me like a knife.

Baby you are.....

My Angel, my miracle, The Queen of my heart.

...
