They Exist

there is always an angel around you

Though sometimes in the shadow,

Waiting for a chance to bestow,

Pearls of wisdom and awards too,

Some for me and some for you,

There are angels in our midst,

Yes, these angels really exist,

As poets and writers emerge,

These angels encourage and urge,

All authors to write about life,

From the depths of strife,

Or tell of demons in the night,

Who escaped when you decided to fight,

Describe the inner beauty of a child,

Mountains of snow or weather mild,

Sensitive we poets are,

Afraid of criticism and words that scar,

Yet we are joined at the heart,

Filling the net with our art,

There are angels who say,

What I need to hear on a very bad day,

“Good job, great work, we like you,

Please submit another poem, too.”

“Because you are unique in what you say,

Please stop and visit another day,”

I don’t hear the fluttering of wings,

But I know a lot about these things,

Kind words in the world are sometimes rare,

But the angels among us really care,

Trying to touch all with words of gold,

And helping newer angels their wings unfold,

Who are these angels, you ask of me?

Their presence is very plain to see,

For in their comments are jewels and gold,

Encouraging, urging, with words so bold.

    1. I’m counting on angels during times of need. Thanks, Pen, for confirming my beliefs.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
