Guardian Angel - Poem by Joyce K. Remy

When I was a little girl.
I couldn't fall asleep.
I was afraid something awful would
happen as I was fast asleep.

Then one evening as I lay there,
oh so nervously,
I thought I heard footsteps and someone calling me.
I was so frightened that
I began to cry.

When at the very moment a warmth
filled up inside.
"What is it child, a voice said to me
I'm right here by you, so go to sleep, I'll
protect you and always be near by."

When I awakened, I knew my
fear was gone,
For God sent a Guardian Angel
till the night was done.
So each night I say a prayer
and fall fast asleep.
For I know God's protecting me
as I sleep.
