"Poetry Thursday" Angels Surround



As you all know I have had some car trouble. I will not bore you with the details, but just say when I least expect it….everything always seems to work out in the most amazing ways, with friends, and family coming through. Tuesday Pepper and I power shopped and got our hair done, we accomplished so much with the loan of a dear friend’s car.

While we were out Pepper bought me this new angel to add to my collection. I thought it would be very appropriate to incorporate a few of my feelings of the past few days into a poem for Poetry Thursday, since I wasn’t too stoked about the prompt this week anyway!

Angels Surround
You have to believe it will be okay
As the angels do surround
Calling at that perfect time
Just trust that they’re around

Gentle breezes of kindness
They can put your woes to rest
With their worry and heart beside you
Coming through on every test

Scattered throughout your world
Disguised in every form
Wondrously meeting your despair
They tenderly calm your storm


Some project words of love
With no reciprocal expectation
Others offer their outstretched hand
Without future implication

They guide you on their wings
To flights so far removed
Grounding with magic solution
Suddenly life’s improved

You just got to believe it will be okay
Angels are always there
Just when you think you’re alone
They’ll heed your desperate prayer

I'm not quite sure how I stumbled upon your page, but I am so grateful to have read this poem exactly 2 years after you wrote it.

God bless you.
