Angels Among Us

A Poem By Wings of Eternity // 4/9/2011

Note: As promised to HomeschoolGirl and Kassady, I am uploading some more poems. This is a few years old, but this poem won honorable mention in a poetry contest. It was written and dedicated to my grandfather before he passed away. Enjoy!

 

To each of us does God assign,

A glorious being of His design.

To whisper advice into our ears,

And pacify our endless fears.

 

They all are sent from up above,

To exemplify God’s eternal love.

Faithful companions, ever by our side,

Always present to guard and to guide.

 

Some appear with a message to give,

To strengthen our faith for as long as we live,

With words of comfort and sometimes you’ll see,

Joyful tidings proclaimed with glee.

 

One may be sent by God’s bequest,

Unknown to us, a divine guest.

To encourage us to open our heart,

And grant us peace when they depart.

 

A stranger that you walked right by,

Could be a minister to the One Most High.

A girl down the street or a man on the bus,

Could possibly be an angel among us.

I love it! So true...

This is so good! And true! I absolutely love it! I mean...you do have to wonder, don't you! I read a magazine before called Angel's Among Us. (At least, I THINK that's what it's called) And it's pretty cool. It has some really neat stories inside it! 

To each of us does God assign,

A glorious being of His design.

To whisper advice into our ears,

And pacify our endless fears.

That's probably my favorite verse. You're saying so much in these four little lines--it's great! Wonderful, wonderful work! Congratulations on the honorable mention, as well! :)) The whole poem is like someone telling a story...it's absolutely fantastic!!! LOVE IT! Keep up the great work here on AP...and please, please, post more SOON!! :D

everything was better when/you would call and I'd be like/yeah babe, no way

Thanks HomeschoolGirl!

Thanks again dear for the beautiful and uplifting comment! It means a lot to have someone write such a lovely comment for my work! As for the title of the piece, I noticed it is used a lot but I actually got it from a song name. It's from Alabama's song titled Angels Among Us. I had already written the poem before I came up with the name. The song really fits the work too! Thanks for the congratulations! This ranks high on my list of favorite poems I have written! I'll do my best to post some more for you soon! I have one more post for this week so after I use that up, you'll have to wait for just a couple days until I can post more :) Thanks again!
