The Angel’s Wings …

Some words of comfort for today…

 

 

The angel sat among the clouds

Amidst the darkening skies,

Her golden curls were tangled

And she looked through tired eyes.

 

The sun was dipping in the west

On earth, she saw them weep.

The angel knew that it was best

To be helping those beneath.

 

She softly flapped her gentle wings

And flew down from above

To silently be there for those in need

And surround them with her love.

 

For a long time her work was hard;

She saw the tears and sorrow,

The challenge of the changing world –

Would it be the same tomorrow?

 

No one saw her standing there

As they sought to find some peace,

But they felt a lessening of fear

And the grip of worry cease.

 

‘Dear Lord’ she prayed as she reached home,

‘I just don’t look my best,

My wings are shabby, my dress is torn,

But there was much unrest.’

 

‘Oh precious child,’ the Lord replied,

‘There is kindness in your heart,

You are my messenger, my trusted guide,

With the love that you impart.

 

Look not upon your ragged wings

For they will soon repair.

Just know the hope your presence brings

To those who feel despair.’

 

And those upon the earth were blessed

As they face a brand-new day,

Embraced by a silent angel

Who had helped them along the way.
