Description: I began musing on this when I read my sister's journal post this morning. About something I said a long time ago to her. I guess you can say she touched my poetic heart and mind this morning.
Sis...this one...in a way....is for you. Well, for us.
Sometimes it's hard to believe, hard to understand why things in our life are the way they are. But, sometimes, you overlook what you are provided with and choose not to value it.
Always have faith.
Belief In An Angel -------------------------------------------
"If you are an angel,
Where are your wings?
Where is your dance,
And the songs you sing?
"Where is the halo,
That hangs on your head?
How many times have you knelt with me,
At the side of my bed?"
"Have you heard all my prayers?
If so, why no resolution?
Why do I still seem alone,
In a world filled with pollution?
"Where is my protection?
Where are the miracles you supply?
I try to live life with confidence,
But I am still hardly getting by."
"It's not that I've lost faith,
I want you to know I still believe.
Yet as you stand before me,
There's many things I can't perceive."
"So young my child,
Wanting to know so much.
I can't believe all this time,
You never felt my touch."
"The nights by your bed,
I held you while you cried.
Any affection you were missing,
I tried to provide."
"You question my halo,
My wings, song, and dance.
Your life hasn't advanced."
"But open your eyes,
And accept what you see.
For God hears you speak,
And he knows you believe."
"He's given you health,
A life, and even a child.
He's been there through your tears,
And every time you've smiled."
"You're protected from evil,
Your miracles are before you each day.
More will come in your future,
If you continue to pray."
"I am with you always,
Never will I leave your side.
When you can't see me stand before you,
It's in your heart I reside."
This reminds me of the 'Footprints' poem I've heard and seen (in one form or another) at almost every Christian bookstore throughout the country: 'Where are you God? Always been here, child'. Sounds as if you felt emotional/spritual support at just the right moment and passed it along to someone else in need of an uplift. "Freely ye have received, freely give" is what God would want you (and your sister) to remember. "I have loved you with an everlasting love" is the theme of this write, as the author of the work, take that to heart. Wish you the best, young lady.

This one is going to my favs so that I can read it for encouragement...I'm on the bottom looking up...and though it's dark down here I just want to tell you that you are that spark of light at the top I'm aiming towards your brightness...
First thing, I wanted to thank you for commenting on nearly ALL my poems. I really appreciate that. For some, reason, this is the first one I clicked on when I got to your page and Im glad I did. Because if this is an indication of what your other works are like...then Im hyped up and ready to read. This can really help somebody through and turn somebody's beliefs around. Good job.
