This is to each one of you who have been my Angels of Earth. Thank you.


These Are the Angels of Earth


Sometimes in the journeys
Of our lives,
We come across people
Who have a spirit about them,
An aura so to speak,
That shines so brilliantly and warm
That we are colored
Amber in their glow
And soothed by their presence

These are the Angels of Earth

The ones whom God has chosen
To live among us
They live an earthly
Life in human bodies
Just like we do,
But they really are not
Of this world.
Their only purpose
Is to bring happiness,
Share kindness,
Offer helping hands,
And open hearts

These are the Angels of Earth

The ones who bring comfort,
Who light the way,
Like a guide, of sorts,
On the paths that we take.
They feed us when we are hungry,
They feed our souls too.
Bring us water when we thirst
That never runs dry
Continually, they give of themselves
Never asking for anything in return
But for us to pass on the gifts
Of kindness to others
We meet along the way

These are the Angels of Earth

They offer solace in our suffering,
A comforting embrace,
A shoulder to cry on,
Words of encouragement,
Tears for our sorrows
As if they were their own;
And, they are their own

These are the Angels of Earth

They are not divine;
They are not gods;
They are people
Like you and me
Who simply do
As the Lord asks them to do
"Do unto others
As you would have them
Do unto you."
The Golden Rule
So simple yet it holds
The world in its hands
It controls the lives and circumstances
Of all who live
And do not
Live by its tenets

These are the Angels of Earth

We all can be the Angels of the Earth
Each day as we leave
Our footsteps along the paths,
While our hearts are
Scattered like wildflowers
Along our trails
Offering God's beauty
To those who will just stop
And stand in the Glow
And feel the warm light
Shining on them,
Making them amber.

These are the Angels of Earth

Thank you for this wonderful poem Kathy!Yes, in my life I have met many angels that gave me the strength to move on with my life and still believe in human kindness. ...

I remember them from time to time, what would my life be if I haven't met them?So I decided to join them and spread the light to my fellow humans...

What would life be without those angels? I don't even dare to think or even imagine..
