Angels on my Shoulder.
I feel I often have angels on my shoulder.
When I was younger I would search for proof
In the hope I’d find some answers.
Today it is different.
Today it is the knowledge
that there are no coincidences.
My angels are people that I have loved
and thought I'd lost
When their physical bodies left the earth.
I don’t see them, but I hear them.
Sometimes through pieces of music
that I’ve known they’ve loved
that have suddenly arrived at a time
when it was so meaningful
For me to hear them.
It could be a letter I’ve found
That I thought might be lost
And I remember them.
There could be a picture or a conversation.
Selfishly I mainly feel my angels
when I have struggled through
A difficult moment in my life
When I have overcome
And I stop and allow myself time to reflect
I know whose wisdom as guided me.
Even during those moments of struggle
I feel whose spirits are helping me through.
I thank them too as I follow my path.
My Angels keep me strong as long
as I let those moments
into my life
Where in my mind, for fact
There are no coincidences.
