So soft are her wings
That heaven has given her
She glides with grace and elegance
Her role as our earthly angel is to bring peace and love
To guide us, steer us, from all that is dangerous
She whispers to us when we are asleep
Shows us such wondrous dreams
Of lovers on the rivers streams
But her strength is in knowing
The strength of the lion
Who we can rely on
To give us the gift of strength, courage and bravery
With each passing day
The will to be what we can be
A heart full of love and pride
She is always by our side
A candle in the darkness to show our way
A very, very heartwarming glow
That shows her unconditional devotion
The softest and gentlest hand
Stroking away our fears and tears
Music to our ears
A comfort to know, but not always understanding why
That she is silently, quietly
Very close by

  1. Very elegant, a joy to read. I like angels, I never think about them enough I guess. I never really do think of them actually. This poem is very angelic. And the part about her being close by, I really like that.
