Guardian Angels

Fallen angels 
 

It's like you fell from heaven and lost your wings 

It's funny what life's changes sometimes brings 
I may never see your face 
But your my saving grace
 
I've often wondered each of us has a guardian of our own 
In our darkest hour of despair we are never alone 
Like shadows they follow us around 
Keeping us from the lost and found 
 
Guiding us and keeping us on the right path
Through life's rapids keeping us afloat like a raft 
We may never know all they've done for us
It's a bond we have built on hope and trust
 
Invisible to the naked eye
Here with us till we die 
Watching over us when we sleep at night 
Hoping and praying we continue to fight 
 
Never allowing themselves to ever be seen 
They know how tough for us life has been 
They know all our truths , mistakes and lies 
But they'll never judge us with their eyes 
 
Perhaps they are only with us for a little while
Given to us on a loan to use just for trial
They are with us through our tough years 
After they have done their time they disappear 
 
Given a task by some higher power
To aid us in our darkest hour
Do they walk among us like strangers on the street
Or are they the strangers that we some times meet
 
Do some fall in love with us and break the rule
Traded in their wings to be a lovesick fool
Then again some of us may not have one at all
With no one around to catch us when we fall
 
As for me I'm not quite sure 
They have ones for an outlaw
It's quite ok that I walk alone
Use to walking on my own 
 
Perhaps I lost mine in a duel
Or left her drunk on a bar stool
I guess no matter where I've been
Once or twice I have seen 
This shadowy figure a time or two
But believing do you

    the angel of death is sort of a guardian angel in many cultures… I like this one it is humerous, touching and spirited…

    Oh my friend believe I do indeed. I’ve seen them in action around me often enough. I’m not sure but I think we have many of them. Or it could be that in my case. It took a whole crew to keep this Bird on the striate and narrow. And I’ll wager there was a good deal of overtime to be had in your case as well outlaw.

    1. wonderwall79

      Hahahah you have a keen eye for the small detail however being a black bird I would expect such a thing my friend haha
      Yes I use to believe , not that I don’t now it just seems rather quiet like I’ve lost mine somewhere
      Thanks as always my friend

        I think… No I’m certain most of the important and hardest work they do on our behalf is preventive. Clearing the way through the Pass B4 we come to it. Rendering it unknowable and therefor unseen to our earth bound vision. But not beyond our heart and mind. So a small gesture of thanks in general now and then goes a long way with them I believe.

        1. wonderwall79

          Arrrrr well said my friend I guess that’s what I respect in you you have a different unique way of looking at things than most ,
          Your slowly turning me into a believer haha
          Yes I like the way you said " Rendering it unknowable and therefor unseen to our earth bound vision"
          Touché touché those word have resonated with me !!!!

    Wonderwall, you can bet there are angels among us ~ sometimes maybe just a stranger who’s kind to us and makes our day; sometimes they are much, much more. Love your post….so honest and true!

      Hi there MA7
      Perhaps it is the mind space that I’m in at current but I hear you loud and clear , I’ve witnessed strangers that made me think they were strategically put in place throughout my journey, of late I’ve hit a lull, but perhaps the most important Angels have already shown me the way.
      I’m slowly believing again
      Thank you as always my friend for commenting

    I like this poem. It sounds so adventurous.

      Hi there thank you for your kind comments,
      I hope we all live a life full of adventure like kayaking down a river with guardian angels guiding us through rapids and boulders thru strong currents and deep water until we arrive to where we all are meant to be
      Just a silly outlaws view anyway
      Thanks for commenting

        I think I only went kayaking once and was going around in circles for a little while, then got better at it, lol. I think that the idea of guardian angels is a sweet idea, but am not so sure if I believe that angels would be so nice if I were to see one in real life. I mean, don’t stories also said that they carried out God’s request to punish people sometimes too? Ah, well, there are a lot of mysterious things in this world that I don’t understand.

        January 24, 2016
        1. wonderwall79

          Yes quite right about the Angels I’m still sitting on the fence whether I believe or not
          Yeah I totally get that with kayaking I’ve been padding for like 5 mins and stayed in the same spot haha
          I was in a small harbour the other day and I didn’t realise the channel I was trying to cross is used by stingrays but chasing them is killer whales who feed on them so I didn’t see anything but I was afraid for the while haha

          January 24, 2016
          1. tulakrystal

            Lol, that sounds like it is amazing to be able to see sting rays and killer whales even though I’d be kind of scared of the whales too. I’ve seen sting rays from a ship and while snorkeling before, but not too many of them. They look like they are flying and the giant sting rays look awesome when they jump out of the water.

            January 24, 2016
            1. wonderwall79

              Yeah I love killer whales they are such a majestic creature although I hate seeming them in shows or water parks.
              I see a certain sadness in their eyes

              January 25, 2016
            2. tulakrystal

              I agree. I’ve heard that it really isn’t good for them to be kept captive like that.

    Yeah we get big commercial fisherie boats from Japan who harpoon our whales in our waters and claim its for science it rips your heart out seeing a beautiful whale being slaughtered
    Mankind can be so cruel !!
