Angel's Voice

Spoken like an Angel 
From the mouth of a babe
Her words came to me so clearly
She had so much to say

“Behold, The Journey of Colors” she said, 
Pointing to her painting
She had no idea how much sense 
All of this was making

She pulled the brush across the canvas, 
With every little stroke 
Of beauty, life, and tragedy 
Her little voice spoke

She let me see through her eyes
The world of imagination
She brings me a great deal of hope 
In a world of stagnation

She speaks with words of wisdom 
That can not be her own
Knowledge and simplicity 
And how we’re not alone

I believe her words are spoken 
Not from voices in her head
But these are the voices 
Of God and Angels instead

Dedicated to my Angel; my six year old daughter that inspires me to be a better person.
