This is not enough to say to all who have prayed for me and wished me well, but it is all I have. This song kept playing through my mind as I lie in my bed of pain. If you are not familiar with it, please listen and even if you are please listen again. This speaks of all you have done for me. I am still healing, and a lot of pain is in my hands which are the instruments to share my poetry so please pray for their complete healing.
How Do I Thank Angels
How do you thank angels?
Words are so inadequate
in a universe that knocked
on heaven’s doors
beseeching God on my behalf.
Sweet spirits spoke my name
in well wishes and petitions for healing.
Their lips of kindness piercing
the shroud of my pain.
People who only know me
from my written words
linked arms with family and friends
to stand in the gap preventing me
from succumbing to the darkness that engulfed me.
Their angel wings lifted my husband
to give him the strength to care for me
when I lie helpless as a newborn.
They wrapped around him when
he held me in my despair.
I don’t know how to thank angels.
My prayer is they know my heart is humbled
and full of gratitude for all they have done.
Two words must suffice for all my spirit contains.
