Earthbound Angel - 1


Earthbound Angels (1)

You know her,
or perhaps 
someone like her,
getting by
day to day
no wings
allowing 
her to fly

Average,
says many,
but to family
her attributes
are plenty;
a kind nature
wearing a smile
for all

She carries
her heart
on the sleeve
of her words
giving freely…
a glimpse
into a love
filled soul

    This is very beautiful. I believe in angels around us and your eloquent words are proof. I hope you might review my "Halo of Grace"

    Thank goodness for Angels that live here on earth. They're shining examples of what heaven's worth. You'll know them by their absence. Your fondness still remains. The emptiness of when they're gone a soulful tear still stains. 1 and 2 both apply. It doesn't matter, a girl or a guy. Peace. :)
