Angel In My Bed

7 Jul

Angel in my Bed

Some days I battle through much hell
But each morning’s the same
I wake up, turn and see an angel
Who helps me reclaim

Some strength, some grace, some belief that
There’s beauty still on Earth
Her peaceful slumber always gives me
Some much needed mirth

I see her still serenity
And feel a wave of peace
I’m grateful to have one person
Who makes my calm increase

She’s like a peaceful lake or a
Perfect golden sunset
In her presence I feel no stress
No worry, doubt or fret

It makes me take a moment to
Appreciate the grace
That still exists in this cynical
Negative, snide place

And it inspires me to show
The same grace on my quest
When I go outside and am put
To the world’s rigid test

An angel in my bed each morning
Always helps remind
That beauty sleeps beside me before
I’m off to the grind

    What a blessed warrior you are, Miro, to wake with that angel-wife in your bed. Peace Be unto you all this day, Brother!

      Thanks Granbee. Wish we could all have such a calming force in our lives, but many don’t wish to search for it.

    This is wonderful Miro… Love at its very Best… I love the line
    She’s like a peaceful lake or a golden sunset…
    Immediately you can feel the peace your Angel generates, as her calm and glow sweeps over you. …
    One of your Very Best Miro…
