Angel Wings

dunlawton bridge sad saturday 003.NEF

The sun came up in the usual way,

nudging me back from the shadows.

My heart felt light for the first

time in so many days since I first found out.

Nature whispered to my soul,

“Come out and see the magic that waits!”

I said a prayer, as I have each morning,

since the call came.

The birds were there, as I knew they would be,

but they seemed different somehow,

Some bowed their heads in silent reverence

while others watched with keen intent.

So many winged creatures, so much beauty

and it filled me with peace and comfort.

None flew

as if they knew…

The world was somehow different,

less and more, but not as before.

Every eye, each sound,  seemed filled with knowing

as if they were showing

me the truth.

I have a friend who always said,

“Life is a school and we came to earn our angel wings.”

But she came with them in place,

and left with greater grace

than I can ever hope to attain.

Someone who saw me as I am

and reflected back only the beautiful things.

So much of me goes with you,

back into the cradle of eternity.

But I cannot feel lonely, for

I know you are always with me

and free from pain, you are

  1. So very sorry for your loss. You will meet your friend in eternal glory one day, and she will remember you because she will never forget you.
    Thank you for this beautiful tribute. Light and peace.


    1. Thank you dear Leon. I know all prayers work for good. I appreciate you so much. So many days I feel, if I have wings, they have been clipped. I fear we are all caged birds in some way while in this physical realm. We both thank you. Love to you both from way over the big pond.
