In the Hearts of Angels©

When an Angel wakes in the morning

Their thoughts are not of themselves

They are making a mental checklist of their plan to help that day

They are willing to go near or far

Early or late

For the rich


For the poor

No task is too great or too small

They’ll risk sickness and health

Safety and Security

All to make sure a smile is on the face of another

They’ll offer up their comfort

They’ll open up their home to all

They’ll give you their last dollar

They’ll give you their last meal

They’ll hold your hand when you hear the worst

They’ll see you through your darkest moments

You’d be amazed at just what they’re willing to do

Not just for you


For anyone

Do you know an Angel?

I know

I sure do

And I’d give up everything just to see them

With reason to smile


Smile on Your Face…©

I step outside of myself to see your pain

I know I can help you so it’s all not all in vain

I get you to smile, which you haven’t done in a while

You tell me it feels good to feel whole again

I sigh and am thankful that I could help with the change

We plan for the future so you have something to face

Now you feel as though you have a place

A place in this world that must keep you around

So many others have hope for your success

Your success at happiness and love in this place

It’s all on the horizon as long as you keep that smile on your face


Carry on as the you, I’m proud to know©

angels right side

Each of us bound to the life that’s been chosen for us

Our fate is marked when we take our first breath

We are all innocent when first we arrive

We must be careful when choosing which road to take

All that we see may not be as it seems

Choices must be made with care

For they will determine  which road you will take

Opinions can’t be made solely on what is seen

We will have to live up to expectations of all those watching over us

Our schooling will prepare us for the career we hope to obtain

Our religion or beliefs will guide us morally

Love and friendship will handle the rest

As long as you stay true to who and what you want to be

Life should go your way

Nothing will come easy

Hard work reaps reward

Be thankful and grateful for each day

Show compassion and understanding to those who struggle

Struggle to find their way as you have found yours

Carry on as the you I’m proud to know you

My bones

My skin

My face

My head

My heart

My inner self

My outer self

My body

My Mind

It all belongs to me

It’s all a part of me

It all makes me whole

It all makes me empty

It all makes me happy

It all makes me sad

It all makes me think

It all helps me decide

My thoughts are mixed

My thoughts are uncertain

Sometimes they make me go back to the beginning

So I then can become certain

Certain of my beginning

Certain of my task

Certain of my foes

Certain of my allies

With all in place I’m ready, set, go…

Out into the world

With all that I have

All that I know

And all I intend to do

Look out world because I’ve begun

To turn to you and set you straight

The time has come to change this place

This place we call our home

Times are changing

Just like we do through the years

But now we must give this place

we call home a facelift

We must clean …

our air so we can breathe

We must clean ….

our water so we can drink

We must preserve …

what is good,

what is healthy

what is in danger

In danger of extinction

our birds

all of our food sources

our bodies

our selves

Give back to mother nature

All you have taken

Now she needs you as she has helped you

Help her before it becomes too late

We’re on a path

A path to extinction

Things can end faster than they began

Adam and Eve, Eve and Adam

No matter the name

No matter the forbidden fruit

Where there’s a beginning

There’s always and ending

We can only extend the time before our extinction

So make your choices

Choices control us

Choices change us

Choices lead us

Choices need us

Choices believe in us

When You Needed Me©

angels right side

When you needed me

I lent you my shoulder

I opened my door

I opened my heart

I gave you all that I had to offer

There is no shame

There is no need to repay me

I lend the hand of hope

To help you see the opportunities before you

To help you see that the world isn’t as bad as it seems

To help you understand that life is worth fighting for

To help you see that no one or no thing has the right to take away your hopes or your dreams

To help you see that your life and all that’s in it is worth fighting for

For as long as you want it

To help you see that you are worth the time and the effort

To help you see that love heals all wounds

I am glad that you needed me

and that I was there to lend my hand and open my door






Eyes as Full of the Ocean©

Eyes as full as the ocean

Don’t close your eyes to the pain

A heart of gold

Let your heart heal the wounded

A soul like no other

Let your soul guide you through

You are open to forgiveness

Traveling through time

Lifetimes over

Nothing has changed

We see the same loss

We know the same devastation

There are some who are forgiving

But more that are unforgiving

We live in the land of hope

But you only have hope

If you feel hope

You have to want things to be

To be different than they were

Every time before

In centuries past

In centuries ahead

Make the change

To begin again

To give our children

and their children

The chance to carry on

To become the things

We could never be

To do the things that we could never do

Through these eyes as full as the ocean

I can see all there is

and all there was

and this time

I want things to be different

Take away the storms that kill

Take away the guns that end lives

Take away the words that send young ones to their deaths

Take away the racism that separate the people

Take away the poverty that leaves those begging

Take away the shame that keep people hidden

Give everyone Eyes as Full as the Ocean

It’s not easy to extend your hand in hopes that you will get the help you so badly need

It’s even harder to choose to be the one to help

Sometimes the decision to help is a part of you

You don’t know any different and its second nature to you

Don’t waste time thinking of what others might think

Because you extended your hand as the giver or the taker

Think of how you would feel if you didn’t

Don’t feel guilty if you can’t afford to extend your hand

Sometimes you may be the one who needs the help

Be open to receiving help

For as long as you are willing to offer help to others in need

Your needs will also be met in some way at some time

We are giving kind

We just need a small reminder sometimes

No one is too good to help nor too good to receive

People are both givers and receivers

Be there for those in their time of need and they will be there for you

Help is always there, all you need is ask


I wrote this poem on 10/02/2013 in a tribute to those who were and

continue to be out of work due to government shutdowns,

but it applies to all those in need everywhere at any time.

Bless you all and your families.
