Of Life and Love and all I've known Within this mortal world, There lives an Angel forged of gold, Whose seen my dreams unfurled. She stands in silent witness to The pain within my soul, And guides my troubled thoughts with care Where peaceful waters flow. Beyond the darkened visions of a past With soft regrets, To places never known before, Where future hope reflects. A mirror of my inner self, A twin of my desires, This Angel holds a candle tight, To light the hidden fires. She weaves a golden cord around The fissures of my heart, To bind the fractured dreams I've held With love and gentle thoughts. Of every trusted friend I've known, And every love before, She's given more than anyone, And asks for nothing more. The beauty of her essence Is a garden of delights, Adding color and enchantment, To the dark and lonely nights. Her words are softened petals, That caress my deepest fears, Her soul a cup of friendship To collect my many tears. Her eyes are pools of comfort, And have shared my deepest dreams, Like stars within the heavens, Casting light upon the scenes. Her voice, a song of laughter, Giving joy to troubled hearts, In rhythm to the power, That united souls impart. Her love a peaceful blanket, To relieve the lonely chills, A warmth that knows no boundaries, The empty spaces filled. These gifts my Angel sent to me, A message strong and true, Of friendship, hope, and thankfulness, And peaceful thoughts renewed. This Angel's Prayer I give to her, Though less than she deserves, I offer her the tenderness, Held close within these words: "Thank God for you and all you've done, You're with me every day, A special kind of friend you are, To walk with me this way. And every path I tread upon, I'll keep you by my side, My beautiful reminder of, The place where faith resides. Where truth and love are joined as one, Upon a higher plane, And voices speak of love we share, With sweet and soft refrain. I pray you'll sense the happiness, You've added to my soul. The colors of the rainbow pale, Beside your golden glow. I promise I will hold you close, Through all the dreams we seek, And every breath I've yet to breathe, You'll feel upon your cheek. And should we ever reach the stars, We'll hold them in our hands, Like diamonds of remembrance, To light our earthly plans. We'll bask within their crystal glow, And walk the sands of time, Side by side and close to heart, We'll share the dreams we find. I'll treasure every moment spent, Within your celestial wings, And know I'm safe amongst your thoughts, Whatever the future brings. And every time you're lonely, I'll be there to comfort you, I pray that you will understand, That I'm your Angel too." "For Michelle"
