My Angel - Poem by Nancy Hamann
I was living in a world of a 20 year old girl.
Having fun and not thinking of any one.
Looking for love but finding none.
Living dangerously because I wasn’t feeling anything.
Then there came a day when life seemed so gray.
Going down a road that had no hope.
God said to me “You don’t seem to understand, this is not what I had planned.”
“I wanted more for you but you seem to refuse.”
“Since you don’t want to hear what I say then here My plan lays.”
“I will give you this girl to show you My world.”
I try to deny what lay inside but my belly started to swell and I didn’t know how I felt.
How do I tell those who seem to want the best for me?
I am afraid.
If I can’t take care of me, how do I take care this being?
I am pregnant and do not know how tell my parents of my ignorance.
I swallow my fears and my parents draw near.
Support and love is all that they showed.
So excited for day for their grandchild to show.
How did I know that this little thing in me would become an angel without wings.
Then she appeared with her wonderful long fingers and feet that made my heart skipped several beats.
As I looked at her face, I couldn’t imagine another place that would be as great as having her here with me.
She is so beautiful, definitely my angel.
