Angels Unawares

Angels Unawares

In the hospital room,

You sit and stare,

holding her hand, you repeat your prayer.

You pray that she will make it through another night,

That somehow, she’ll find the will to fight.

But even as the hours, stretch on into days,

a seed of light lives in the haze.

The sun, it will come up again,

to find you sitting with a friend.

You won’t see them,

but they're there.

You won’t feel them,

as they stare

But up among the cobwebs,

In the far corner of the room,

There sits a being of love and light,

and all will be right soon.

In hospitals they come and go,

harbingers of the ebb and flow.

In life and death, they pave the way,

Whether to help us leave, or to help us stay.

You may not feel them kiss your brow,

But you will know you’ve been touched somehow.

Ask a newborn baby,

Or ask a dying soul.

Take a look into their eyes,

And you will see, 

they know.



Outside, the steaming towers blow

The birds, they scream,

The life you know

And in your mind,

The world seems cold.

You doubt yourself,

the faith you hold

But, shift your gaze, look to the right,

“It must have been a trick of light.”

Are you mad, or did you see,

A glint of some divinity?



You won’t see them,

but they're there.

You won’t feel them,

as they stare.

But up among the cobwebs,

In the far corner of the room,

There sits a being of love and light,

and all will be right soon.

In hospitals they come and go,

harbingers of the ebb and flow.

In life and death, they pave the way,

Whether to help us leave, or to help us stay.

You may not feel them kiss your brow,

But you will know you’ve been touched somehow.

Ask a newborn baby,

Or ask a dying soul.

Take a look into their eyes,

And you will see, they know.

Ask a newborn baby,

Or ask a dying soul.

Take a look into their eyes,

And you will see, they know.
