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

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.
