ANGEL ON THE SHORE

It was early September
The summer breeze still warm.
I watched the sunset that night
Sitting on my bay side rock,
A single shadow in the moonlight
Alone with my God.
In the darkening evening sky
A star dropped from the heavens above.
There was such a calm around me
The gentle light it smiled
As it fell into the ocean.
I thought it had died then
But no, it danced upon the water
And with every gentle rolling wave
It drew closer.
It was calling my name
Beckoning that I come to meet it.
I stood up and walked cautiously towards it
As the cooling water
Swirled around my ankles.
The light I could nearly touch it,
So bright I closed my eyes
I turned to look back at the rock, I once sat
And there she was,
An Angel on the shore,
A reflection of God's love on the sand
Just looking into my eyes.
We reached out in that moment
Our hands and then our hearts met.
We spoke, I don't remember the words,
They were lost in the breeze.
In the still of the night
We smiled, we embraced,
No longer alone in our thoughts.
Was this a dream?
Each new dawn
The waters ebbed and flowed,
The sun, the moon
Did rise and fall
But we still sit here,
The light still glowing
Ever stronger than before.
Our hearts are warmed
As we watch more lonely stars
Each single one,
Someone's answer to a prayer
Tumble from the cool night sky
This could be a dream.....
But everyday I awake to a new sunrise
My Angel, she still sits here
On our rock, with me.
Where sadness once sat
Only happiness now reigns
My shinning star, my Angel
So glad you came my way.
As we sit here in the moonlight
Now a single shadow,
Alone here with our God
Angel forever with me
Under every star lit sky.


Sometimes in life,
You are blessed with a Very Special Friend
A Friend whom is always there for you,
A Friend that shares in all your ups and downs,
A Friend that loves you for what you are,
A Friend that cares about every part of your life
BIG and Small
A Friend so connected, that you
think the same thoughts,
dream the same dream,
suffer the same pains,
cry the same tears, 
worry the same worries,
laugh the same laughs,
raise the same smiles,
Pray the same prayers.
This is a forever friendship

And when you find this Friend
You have found your Special Friend
Your Soulmate
Your Angel

This poem is dedicated to
My Angel.
