He came to me on that warm sunny day
He asked me to follow him and promised to guide the way.
He said he needed a special angel like me
To watch over my friends and protect my family.
I didn’t want to leave you without saying good bye
I didn’t want to hurt you or make you cry.
But for the wings of an angel I couldn’t say no
And with his hand in mine he said it’s time to go.
Though you may not see me, you’ll know I’m still there
Wrapping you in my arms with loving care.
I’ll be the warm sun brightening your day
I’m the gentle breeze chasing your blues away.
I will touch your heart and make you feel
An angel’s love that you will know is real.
Everyday throughout the years
I’ll give you the courage to face your fears.
I’ll watch over you by night and by day
I’ll be the warm light that guides your way.
I’ll be the reason you suddenly smile
My spirit will follow you through your last mile.
For the wings of an angel I couldn’t say no
But I’ll always be there wherever you go!
At the request from a friend, I wrote this poem for a woman who was killed with her husband
while riding their Harley. They were rear-ended by a drunk driver. Drunk drivers are a
very angry subject with me...so I can not say anything more!
