Was It An Angel - Poem by louis rams
She was one of the soldiers stationed in Iraq
She survived a roadside bomb attack.
When she looked to her left the driver was dead
With a piece of shrapnel lodged in his head.
She found herself being pulled from the wreckage
Before it could explode
When she was a safe distance she looked
And found herself all alone.
She recalls that the one that helped her saying:
" it's not your time - don't worry you'll be fine "
She said his arms were as strong as can be
As he pounded on the floor plate to set her foot free.
Before she passed out she turned and saw him walking down the road
He had a pair of wings - we was told.
Was it an angel? Can it be?
So she could return to her children and family!
