My Angel

A mother's loss becomes her saving grace.

For my baby boy, flying high among the angels.

He came to me with broken wings.

And he wept bitter tears,

He said a fateful day was coming.

Full of human fears.

He took my hands.

He hugged me tight.

He sang a song,

Filled with fright.

My heart swelled large.

And filled me with grace.

To raise up the hopes,

And the feelings and minds.

At my Angel's bold wink.

With purpose in mind.

And destiny in stride.

I began the task,

Once before I had tried.

With him at my shoulder.
