Angels With No Name

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. DEDICATED TO THE MANKATO SURGERY CENTER EMPLOYEES 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!

Deborah, This is such a heartwarming poem.Not only did you have angels that helped you through a difficult time,but you are also an angel for this tender dedication. You have a good heart, which is evident in your poetry.Also, your comments are so kind, ..I can't tell you what a lift to my spirit, when someone like you, takes the time to write such nice, complimentary comments on a simple poem, that quite often I doubt is worthy among all these gifted writers. Thank you! keep writing!~Carrie
