MY ANGEL

Following is a poem written by a daughter for her father who is suffering from Lou Gehrig's disease:
MY ANGEL (Lovingly written by Luree) He sits with me and he shares my life From sun's first smile To night's last gasp. No matter the course of each day's ride Quiet, determined On my shoulder he nests. His face is unseen His name is unknown But his breath and his voice Like the wind Bring me home. Messages from heaven are born on his wings Emboldened with hope Love Rebirth And measureless joy. Enabling me to smile today in the dusk And be ever at peace in tomorrow's sunrise.
