MY TEN ANGELS

Ten angels walk beside me,
each and every day.
Ten angels help to guide me,
to give comfort and protect.
They have been my companions
since I was very young.

Now you may ask me,
why Ten?
Do you think you are special?
Why not one, or two, or three?
Why Ten?
Surely you don't need so many?

Well, each and every angel
has a special job to do.
Yes, it seems even angels,
specialize.

All of us know Faith,
Hope, and Charity.
They are wonderful angels,
and ALL so overworked.
But there are seven more you see,
and each and every one
gives comfort and protects.

The Fourth angel,
is the angel I call TOLERANCE.
Whom I fear we do not
use enough, for if we did,
there would not be
any BIGOTRY, OR HATE.

The next angel,
is the one I call FORGIVENESS,
who is under utilized as well.
Who among us could not do
with more FORGIVENESS in our hearts.

Then we have the angel
I call BEAUTY. We all see so much ugliness in life,
I don't know a single soul,
who couldn't do with
more BEAUTY in their life.

The next two angels,
are the twins I call JOY and HAPPINESS.
They are most often seen
walking hand and hand.

My favorite angel
is the one I call FRIEND.
This little angel, is the one
who can bring real riches to our lives.
I have often heard her saying,
"To have a friend, one must first be a friend".
And do you know,
it WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And last but in no way least,
is the angel I call, LOVE.

Sometimes she seems so shy,
and it seems like she is sleeping.
But she is always near.
If we would only open up our hearts.
and just see her standing there.
For if we did,
then all the other Angels
would be easier to see.

It is my belief that we all have
TEN ANGELS
walking beside us.
They are sent from God,
to see us through,
to guide, comfort and protect us
until the day we join HIM,
in the place we call HEAVEN.
