Angel In Waiting
by WILLIAM MAE
There’s an Angel now is waiting,
To receive her golden wings,
Passing through life unknowing,
Of the gift to life she brings.
I know other Angels walk this earth,
All but hidden in plain sight,
The reason this one’s special,
Is God placed her in my life.
Tested by disease when young,
She found strength in her heart,
Issues with her family,
Would have torn most worlds apart.
Yet she’s happy always smiling,
Gives encouraging words to me,
She’s my sunshine to be honest,
In my storms, well, she’s my breeze.
She owns rights to be bitter,
Many are with far less strife,
But her soul would not permit her,
To walk angry through this life.
To say simply I admire her,
Ignores the feelings in my soul,
For I believe in this person,
Shared by God to us below.
She could not know the reaches,
Or the strength of her power,
Not of force or might I’m speaking,
But of love is where she towers.
Not just sympathy, although it’s gold,
But empathies what she owns,
You see she’s walked in shoes of others,
In her life and in her home.
Yet she doubts if she could be loved,
If her beauty was to wane,
A justifiable self reaction,
A defense for hidden pain.
I’ve searched her for every fault,
That her grace may have forsook,
I can tell you that I see none,
And believe me I have looked.
She was smiles when those were needed,
Both my laughter and my joy,
She’s engorgement when I falter,
She’s an Angel on my shore.
She’s upbeat, optimistic,
Hardworking with a goal,
She brings love on the outside,
Plus the inside of her soul.
She’s a rose that blooms in deserts,
She’s a port where weary docks,
I can tell you that in my life,
She’s became a solid rock.
I unload my cares upon her,
And for that I feel ashamed,
Her love has risen deep inside,
My soul and heart to reign.
Life’s tests will make you stronger,
And she’s proven that as truth,
She attacks life as a tiger,
Every day that she is loosed.
My Angel on life’s tossing seas,
My balm for all life’s pain,
She is known by someone different,
For me just “sunshine” is her name.
