When touched by an Angel

Spread the love

angel-at-work

Unable to live in guilt and fear;
We yearn for love that much is clear.
Love is such arrives unnoticed;
To give us pleasure its only motive.

Unable to live alone in pain;
Love uplifts so we may gain.
It makes the heart go warm and soft;
In love our deepest of qualms are lost.

Love enables our soul to live;
In time we learn to trust – forgive
Our heart it sings a thousand songs;
Distinguish between the rights and wrongs.

We dance in love – embrace its light
Though lie awake in hours of night.
Love dares one to be wild and brave;
And long for all we wish and crave.

So strive to hear wherever you are;
Perhaps store love inside your jar.
Mortals in all their wisdom agree;
Love is bound to set them free.

    Very moving and so true. We need God’s love if we are going to make it. This respects Maya Angelou’s work too

  3. Very nice job; the touches of Maya are sweet & authentic. I love the image header as well, ANGELS IN AMERICA is an incredibly powerful play & film & sentiment. At first I thought you might be responding to the play, but Maya is stirring enough as a catalyst. As the Beatles said: Love is all we need.

    Love certainly does enable our soul to live! Without it we would whither away. I am a great fan of Maya Angelou’s poetry also, but though I enjoy her writing I would not say that she is a poet who inspires mine.

    Love the image and the sentiment. As one who has experienced two medical miracles in our family, I truly believe there are angels along the way.
