What do you see

Looking down from Heaven’s perfection

To earthly chaos

It seems you should feel horror

Disgust at the gutter where we crouch

Squabbling mindlessly over scraps

But your compassion is beyond us

Your love unfathomable

With a flutter of shining feathers you come

With tears for our suffering

Your eyes flame with the light of God

Your sword defeats our enemies

Your wings outstretched like burning gold

You are beauty, my angel

You are the messenger of God

One thought on “My Angel
