you ever seen an angel?
you know where to start?
not adorned with jewels or fancy clothes,
beauty and uniqueness comes
from their souls and their hearts.
you not noticed the stranger on the corner?
they had imperfections
your standards, which they didn't meet?
could you miss the beauty,
the smile of a friend, how could you turn away,
if they meant nothing, what now do you say?
wings neatly tucked away?
stopped by just to say a friendly "Hello"?
you taken a moment to spend with them,
did you rush them away?
if that friend a shoulder to lean on,
didn't know exactly what to say?
you not looked deep into their eyes,
you not see into their soul?
you not feel their pain,
have you chosen to simply turn away?
this world we are each one person,
to one person we are the world!
you not seen the greeting in each smile,
have you missed the message all together?
you not noticed the glow,
they spoke to say "Hello"?
you not seen the joy on their face,
the twinkle in their eyes,
the two of you talked,
nothing in particular,
exchanging silly thoughts.
are surrounded by angels,
only we'll take the time to see!
may the friend right beside us,
may be the friend far away!
come in every color, shape, and size,
their hearts are gentle and pure,
out the angels in your life,
soon a gracious friend you will find.
your life, for always,
sun will brightly shine!
(Inspired by a gracious "Angel" friend!)
