In The Arms Of An Angel

An Angel is a Spiritual Being
A Messenger of God, His Agent
Working Divinely with love
Around us, or when needed, sent

Some people get to see them
Magnificent, powerful, bright
With pure white wings of feather
A truly life-enhancing sight

But most just know of them
Or at least hope they are true
For we all need the Divine Love
To support and help us through

However, we have an Earth Angel
Who has always been around
For we are all Spiritual Beings
And Divine Love can be found

There is one who’s always loved us
With all their open heart
Giving their mind, body and Spirit
To our existence, right from our start

They nurtured us for many years
Building our home, a feathered nest
For us to feel at peace, warm and safe
Whenever we needed to have a rest

To them we were never ordinary
But exceptional, even miraculous
Our smallest of achievements
They’d shower us in loving fuss

Unconditional Love and forgiveness
Flowed from their heart and eyes
And when we were little children
They were God‘s Agent, all-wise

As babies we knew the truth
Being fresh from the Great Above
We’d only be placed in the arms
Of the strongest and highest love

In The Arms Of An Angel
We were held like no other
Truly Blessed from the Divine
With an Angel as our Mother

About This Poem

As I mentioned in my last post: Mother’s Day’ the title and theme of this poem came to me with the line from the song ‘Angel’ by Sarah McLachlan. I was writing down some notes for that poem when the song just came into my head and I instantly knew it was for another poem.

Several years ago I came up with the idea of putting angels wings on photos of my grandchildren. I have used them in several things I’ve made, including quotes for my website and Facebook page. So, it was an obvious idea to add Angel wings to some mother pictures too.

I used these pictures below, and others, for my mum’s card and I also sent the poem to my two daughters with pictures of them with each of their children too.
