Guardian Angel

Her scars tell a story,
the bruises show a past
of agony and tears,
heartbreak and fears.
But only a glimpse, into this little girls life
is all you’ll ever see.
She hides everything behind that silly smile.
Fools everyone with that childish laugh.

With every hurtful word thrown her way,
sends a crack so deep into her heart.
Just a tattered, beaten case of a soul.
The slightest touch bringing tears to her eyes.

Every where she goes, there’s one thing that always follows.
A simple chain with a broken locket
kept around her neck.
People stare, and people wonder
and every time she answers softly

“It’s for my guardian angel.
I don’t know where he is.
Mommy said he would help me
to fix everything that’s wrong.
I am yet to find this mystery angel
but I know he’s out there somewhere;
and I’ll always be waiting.”

This leaves each person silent,
with a tear crawling down their cheek
but when she sees them crying,
she says sincerly,

“Don’t waste your tears on me,
I never meant to make you cry.
Can you promise me one thing?
I need my guardian angel more than ever now,
If you see him, can you tell him to stop by?”
