An Angel Just For Me Poem by Patricia Grantham

An Angel Just For Me

Rating: 4.5

As I was walking through the woods on a warm Summer day
Then saw an Angel up ahead as I went along my way
My reaction to this Angel was not borne out of fear
I began to speak softly for I knew that she could hear

She looked at me with eyes of love but did not say a word
Then bowed her head solemnly that told me that she heard
A Heavenly messenger just for me sent from God above
To guide and protect me with an abundant shower of love

We often began to wonder if Angels really do exist
They appear to us in many ways by a hug, kind words or a kiss
When I got to the end of the path she said to me with a smile
I traveled with you along the way and guarded you all the while

The path that I had chosen to take apparently without a care
This was the way I had to go for my Angel was already there
An Angel just for me I said as I headed back for home
Always with me wherever I go and however I choose to roam

This is a delightful poem. It covers so much of life. There is the concept of a guardian angel for each individual. There is also the notion that acts of kindness performed by other people are angelic. And why not? Even Hamler, that inveterarte pessimist, had to admit human beings resemble angels - at least part of the time (Oh Ophelia!) Angels play a striking role in modern poetry. In his DUINO ELEGIES Rilke addresses angels frequently, Rafael Alberti has a whole volume devoted to angels and it is stunning! And the Angel Huertebise appears in Cocteau's films as well as his poems. You might want to check my poem THE VISITATION OF ANGELS. I usually don't promote my own poems in these comments but this one is relevant

I really enjoy reading this poem as it helps to solidify my faith in God and his protective power.. Whether or not the writer actual saw an angel is not my concern. I see the writer as a spiritual partner and a sister in Christ letting us all know that in our daily walk we are always accompanied by God's angel.I will never forget how when my son was a baby he fell through the back door a few feet high and landed on the stones below and he was unscathed.I believed the angel of the lord protected him then.

A good depiction of the essence of guardian angel portrayed in a well articulated narrative poem, nicely written with spiritual insight. Thanks for sharing Patricia. Please read my poem COLOSSAL MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE.
