Did you ever feel a tiny raindrop trickle down from the sky

and land upon your cheek when there is no rain in sight,

and wonder where it came from when the day is sunny and bright?

Did you ever hear someone clearly call out your name,

and when you turned to look there’s not a familiar face anywhere around

and wonder where it came from,

when the voice was there without an ounce of doubt?

The answer is quite simple,

angels are everywhere watching over you and me.

Though at times we don’t feel a presence at our side;

angels are always there

morning, noon and night in the most mysterious of ways

looking after us with much love

forever and always.
