The Angels- A poem by Rebecca Wood

the guardian angel

The Angels


I wrote this poem late one night while thinking about a women who died from giving child birth. It saddens me to hear of such sorrow but I have created a way to look through the woman's eyes in this poem. May this be a pain reliever to anyone that has suffered the loss of a woman from child birth.

So if you remember me after I'm gone

Try to remember that it is a new dawn

When this angel leaves, one will replace it

It's just the way of life, we have to face it

I will still live on

Long after I'm gone

Because the angel who replaced me

Will look like and embrace me

No, she will not know it

But you will see that she will show it

A sparkle in her eye, a glisten in her hair

She will be warmhearted and do all that is fair

So my last smile will be joined by a tear

Don't cry, just hold our baby girl and know that I'm near

So baby, don't be mad or sad

Just know you were the best I ever had

I'll be watching over both of you

And remember my love will always stay true

I have seen guilt put on people you didn't think was possible so it honestly wouldn't surprise me.

What a sad and moving piece. Your heart has to go out to those children losing their mothers in labor. I would think that there is an occasional twinge of guilt as well as if one may think that they were the cause.
