Angel Girl

The hands of a child 
Spread out wide
To catch heavens rays
Eyes tightly closed
A silent prayer
She is not ready to go

She is afraid to fly
Her wings are so new
She feels grounded to this world
The love that is here
Crying whispers that flow to her ear
Yet of God she has no fear
Still she does not wish to leave
She prays with faith and truly believes

God looks down and smiles
He knows if he leaves her there will be trials
In the end love does conquer all
He will not let this angel fall

A tiny butterfly
Placed in her right hand
Spirit to body with his command
Hourglass refilled with pure white sand
His angel girl 
Her new life planned


With these hands contest

    Exciting poem! Each line builds the plot and character. Realistic, yet surreal at the same time. Quite a trick if you ask me.

    Hello Richard, a special poem. It is only natural to write such a delightful poem for this contest... I really liked this, and what I like even more is that it felt as if it just poured right out from your pen and heart... Deep, and beautiful... By the way, Hope you had a wonderful Christmas with the family. xox.. Linda
