From deep within the story goes,

the nightime world is juxtaposed,

to bid the earth

in heavenly throes…

with saintly protectors

to carry our woes.

It happened one night, a stormy one…

an Angel was called to help a tot,

having a nightmare,

she was calmed on the spot.

But in the time the suffering was silenced,

the Angel fell in love,

did not want to go away …

and went to  the little girl every day.

They shared stories

and played on and on,

until such time,

she was no longer a child,

but tall and graceful and strong.

One winter’s night, the Angel came to say,

we cannot survive as soulmates now,

please keep me in your heart,

and bless our past,

for in your soul is where I reside,

always remember,

I’m here at your side.

Through all you encounter,

both happy and sad,

never fear, know to the core,

Im here to serve…

your guardian Angel forever more.

The girl went on with her life,

and on occasion,

out of the corner of her eye,

spying a figure,

bathed in light,

by the end of her bed,

there was the Angel,

soothing her from a day

filled with strife.

Then she knew her Angel friend

was near,

dozing off to dream… she went …holding her dear.
