I came there for same day surgery with a dark cloud over my life
And you listened without judgment as I spoke of no hope in sight.
You held my hand as you spoke soft encouraging words
But so wrapped up in my own misery I never really heard.
The next day I found an anonymous note
And my heart was touched by the words an angel had wrote.
I sat there in total disbelief as I cried without shame
For the generous gift from some angels with no name.
But something extraordinary happened that day
That anonymous gift inspired me to find my way.
These unknown angels lifted me up when I was feeling down
And they gave me a reason to pick myself up off the ground.
They showered me with heartfelt compassion as they illuminated me with their guiding light
They taught me how to hope and showed me the true meaning of life.
Though my own wings were damaged by dark venomous skies
These unknown angels showed me that I still could fly.
I will never forget what those angels did for me that day
And no simple thank you or money could ever repay.
As I adjust the beautiful new glasses sitting on my nose
My deep appreciation for these unknown angels continuously grows.
Thank you anonymous angels for your generous unselfish gift
And for your anchor of compassion that has kept me adrift.
No words can truly express just how much you all mean to me
And how much I appreciate all that I finally can see.
Though I cannot see your golden halo or feel your downy soft wings
I know that you are all angels sent down here to teach me how to sing.
I now hold my head proudly high as I walk with out shame
Because I was touched by angels with no name.

This poem is the very first one I ever wrote and was inspired by some angels that touched
my life in a way no one ever has. It just goes to show that there really truly are angels
among us--you only have to open your eyes and heart to see them!
