Earthbound Angels

I was at a place I didn't want to be,
and was privileged to see angels 
working around me.

The angels in heaven were praising 
and singing, as the night angel
here on earth quietly was 
comforting a lady here on this plane.


With a soothing voice ,the night
angel talked to reassure and
with a touch of a hand  let her 
know someone was there.

There also was a day angel ,as 
busy as she was took time to
cool a hot brow, talk to this
sweet lady suffering her last 
days, like she heard every word.

So give praise to God's angels
here on earth ,they do not look
like angels but angels they are.

So bless them do, 
Nurses they are ,all around you.

    Anne, I am pleased to have come back to this one poem about angels and your impression of the nurses who cared for you while you were convalescing...some days I feel like a glorified waitress, other days I feel as tho I can move the world with a healing touch...oh, by the way, I got to talk to John yesterday for 15 min...hope he contacted u...you are nominated the president of the poetry club when we get to heaven! We are gonna all have a blast and I will get to finally meet this lovely man that you write glorious poetry about...hope your heart is healing...luv, gwendolen

    Another nurse deeply appreciates this moving poem....ME! I love to celebrate ALL nurses...they work long hours with little breaks and are having to learn to do so much more with LESS. I still have my fav poem of yours--Sisters! Hugs, hang in there too. gwendolen

    Earthbound Angels will soar someday. Their ticket paid, they'll be on their way. And when they leave, may their place be filled. And another nurses account be billed.
