Angels (1-29-10)

They arrive in our lives

right time

right place

Pick us up,

Dust us off,

Dry the tears,

save us

from the shadows that loom ahead

They’re there because

we’re not

far off and lost

too scared to see the path

they give us the strength



help us move through the world


unafraid of the corners and dark places

hold our hands as we face them

dare to walk the darkness by our side

shining their light

loving us

leading us ever closer

to that which will

mend our

broken hearts
