When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

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

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

I don’t want the things that everyone else has

I want what I need

And that is you

I don’t want the things that no one wants to give me

Because I will always work hard to get what I need

I don’t want to cry because I can’t change the world

I will accept what can’t be changed

But will try to change what can be

I don’t want to have days where I stand alone without loved ones

Because I didn’t make time for them

Because I wouldn’t make time for them

I don’t want to live with with a broken heart

Knowing that I could change everything

Before it’s too late

My life won’t be riddled with regret

I may be blind

But I can still see you with every touch

Every line

Every dimple

Every smile

Every frown

I feel your heart race when you lay next to me

I hear your pulse raise when you nestle in my arms

I hear your heart break when you think you are no longer mine

I know your pain when it’s time for us to part

I don’t have to see you

To need you

I don’t have to see you

To know I could lose everything

My biggest fear is that you will stop loving me

Because I can’t see you

And you fear that I will leave you

Just know

That my heart will always be yours

I don’t have to see you to need you© 2015

My name was unknown

I sat in a corner and I wept

I laird my clothing because

My scars were all you could see

I feared you’d follow my every move

My direction was unclear

Nothing and no one was there to help me

Leaving my needs unmet

Nothing I wanted could be obtained

Making it seem that my desires were unimportant

No one wanted or needed my advice or savvy

Causing my knowledge and skills to be underutilized


In spite of everything

I’ve left all behind

Those who need to know my name do

There is no hint of emotional or physical scaring

I have found both my way and my voice

There is no need that hasn’t been met

All my hopes have now been realized


My knowledge has helped to heal many

Thank you for my new lease on life
