My Own Special Angel

posted in: poetry | 0

When I hear a song, I look for you
When I read a book, I look for you
When I see a baseball field, I look for you
When I see a hiking trail, I look for you
When the wind blows the trees, I look for you
When a bird flies by, I look for you
When someone laughs, I look for you
When I breathe, I look for you
When I am awake, I look for you
When I am asleep, I look for you
When I see love, I look for you
When I feel joy, I look for you
When I cry my tears, I look for you

But now I know…
When I hear a song, you are singing with me
When I read a book, you are turning the pages
When I see a baseball field, you are tossing a ball
When I walk a trail, you are leading the way
When the wind blows the trees, I hear your sweet voice
When a bird flies by, I see you soar high
When someone laughs, you laugh louder
When I breathe, you are the air I take
When I am awake, you are holding my heart
When I am asleep, you are holding my soul
When I see love, you love bigger
When I feel joy, you are dancing in heaven
When I cry my tears, you wipe them away

You are every song, every book, every baseball field, every trail
You blow with the wind and soar with the birds
You are every breath, every smile, every laugh
You are peace and love and absolute joy
You will continue to wipe my tears, no matter how hard they flow
You are always in my heart and forever in my soul
You are always holding my hand and will continue to pick me up
You are my own special angel, hand-picked by God

Happy Birthday, dearest Clayton, love mom
