Angels

A Poem By Kay J Fields // 4/6/2010

 

Angels
 
He was sitting in the room crying
As his wife lay before him dying
She needed surgery to keep her heart going
You gave her another chance without them ever knowing
Who were you, a stranger they’d never met?
What were you thinking, what did you hope to get?
You paid the bill which they couldn’t pay
You gave them a miracle, then quietly walked away
They might not understand, but they won’t forget that day
 
She was just a little girl, stepping out on a busy street
A car flashed by and there was no retreat
You were the one who got in the way
You pushed her aside and took on her fate
Who were you, a stranger she’d never met?
What were you thinking, what did you hope to get?
Now she’s grown and puts flowers on your grave
She tells her children that they’re the ones you saved
But she still can’t understand the sacrifice you made
 
The divorce had torn them apart
The wife left the home, trying to find a new start
The husband met you when walking along the road
He found himself telling you it all, trying to lighten his load
Who were you, a stranger he’d never met?
What were you thinking, what did you hope to get?
You told him to go home, read his Bible and pray
He talked to his wife and begged her to stay
They got back together and he told her how you helped him that day
 
Who were you?
You were an angel, that much they know is true
What were you thinking?
What were you trying to show?
Maybe a smile was all you were seeking
Maybe they’ll never know
And what did you hope to gain?
When others would have called these acts insane
You knew how to spread light through dark and rain
You only wanted to hear that simple phrase ‘Well done’
As you knelt before the Father and the Son
They will always recall
What these angels did for them all
 
These were miracles
Done by the average man
Who were called to make a stand
To give a gift
To be a helping hand
To help, to love, to lift
These
Were angels
