I’ve never spoken publicly about this in my life, but this was 10 years ago. Maybe it will serve as an inspiration. This is something very special to me.


The Gift

MawMaw,
I prayed to god and asked him if
He’d make you my guardian Angel
I craved to know the one that I loved so
Would look after me for all of my days
I knew your end was near, but I was not ready to let you go
And then I woke to find you had gone away
From the earth you had left, but in my heart you stayed
And so I went to your house after that day
There it was just laying about in a peculiar way
A silver coin with an Angel etched in its face
A gift from heaven I found, left there for me
And on the back it said “guardian Angel guide and protect me.”

Yes, truly a gift you wanted and was granted.

The flow of words and the truth of its reality entwine together and bring to life not just a memory but more. This month is my 'mawmaw's' birth month, she passed on last month 11 years ago. A very apt reading that bridges a very personal life experience for me. Thank you.
