Not all angels come
With a divine set of wings
In my experience I have encountered some
Who wear a smile and say the loveliest things
They disguise themselves as ordinary beings
Lawyers. Doctors. Mothers. Friends.
Yet their love and affection ends up freeing
Us from our hateful and untimely ends

These angels though are special and rare
They don’t pride themselves on being smart or fair
Instead their wit and charm are used to make you beam
Their beauty is derived from their radiant and beautiful dream
It takes courage to be the unsung hero
To bring laughter and kindness where there were zero.
We owe them our gratitude and love
Instead we judge and fleece these peaceful doves.
We ordinary folk are petty and unscrupulous
We think too much and feel too little
We wish and try for our lives to be fabulous
We hurt those who help. Them we belittle.
I take this moment to be gracious
To all the angels who make me, us.
To every thanks I failed to say
To mothers and friends I give this day.
Let there be no more neglected spirits,
No thanks left unsaid, None spared of the love spread.
Go ahead and embrace all those you hold dearest.
Spare no occasion for cheer and no time for dread.
