What can be as beautiful as a flight of birds, soaring through the heavens, using the updrafts to lift ever higher in a bright blue sky. The flight of the human spirit. And to guide that spirit on it's way, God has a flight of angels waiting, to protect you on your journey though time and life. For your enjoyment, I present.
My Guardian Angel
My guardian angel works overtime.
I just can't seem to resist
All the challenges life can hold.
They give me reasons to exsist.
He flies above me, ever watching.
For my foot will surely fall
Exactly where it shouldn't.
Keeps me safe, in spite of it all.
My first toddling steps,
My first dive in the sea,
My first falling in love,
He watched over me.
When I got married, his job expanded.
Now I had children
For whom to take chances.
I suppose I gave him a few gray hairs
Watching me go where only fools dare.
As life progressed,
My wisdom improved.
Took less chances,
I had less to prove.
Finally ready for one last flight,
My guardian angel takes
The best of my life.
Leaving my broken shell behind,
He brings me to God
In His good time.
