Angels  on Earth

I saw an angel today
She did not have feather wings
Nor did she don a halo.

No, instead she wore an apron and
a tired smile.

I saw an angel today
He did not play a harp
Nor was he floating on a cloud.

No, instead he sang a song of
Of hope and compassion for his fellow man.

I saw many angels today
They were not taking souls to heaven
Nor were the shooting arrows of love.

No, instead they were spreading
Peace and kindness.

When angels walk the earth
The hungry are fed
The homeless sheltered
And the lonely comforted.

I am thankful to have been
Witness to angels here on earth.
