Angels of Love
The desperation and despair
in losing lives of loved ones
on such a massive scale;
the destruction of homes
that once heard laughter and song;
the lives of so many now gone,
but a whisper in aching hearts
too wrought with the force of survival
that must wait for another day;
too poor to flee,
too bound by poverty to piece
what they had back together.
But in each of us,
there is hope.
We are such marvelous creations
who have been given a gift
some of us may not even know we have…
The ability to give of our hearts
To share what we have
To love one another!
Our hands can help,
our hearts can touch the lives
who so desperately need us now.
We can be angels of strength and hope,
We are angels of LOVE!
