The Angels Will Know.......

We believe the angels will lead us
into the otherworld
without a spoken word
Maybe a child will reach for
your hand ......
Or an elder to touch you
on the elbow....
and you will know.
it's time now.....
And for each of us that's the
way it will be.
A soft whisper
A spoken prayer
a soft breeze in a dark
night......And for some
it will be......at the hand of another
Or on the day of birth....
However it comes to us
fear not .......
The angels will lead us........

We all hope for a caring hand to guide us into the unknown, but in the end we walk that path alone. Angels, spirits, guides or the hand of God... we reach out, for comfort, for strength, to feel the last touch of love and life, and perhaps to give the last touch of love to those left behind.

I like the way your words always cause me to stop and think and go beyond myself.

Thank You.

Hello my favorite Wyoming girl, Thank you ! I'm a very regular guy , but I kind of believe theres something out there. At least in spirit . I hope we are alone, only here on earth. Hugs to you.

It's good to know regular guys still believe in the mysterious "out there" Science has in my opinion clouded the minds of many who now think that what we know and show with our limited knowledge base it truly all there is. We are on this planet such an insignificant speck in all that is and all that we yet to know. A truly intelligent person would have to believe there has to be more - perhaps only spiritual - perhaps also material. May we never cease to wonder and grow. The search goes on...

Hugs in return my friend.

Cheyenne , you are so right my friend, I recently heard and repeat here , " It takes more faith to believe that there is nothing out there than that there is!" We are truely a speck. In spite of our egotistical intellectually challenged science community. You and I "know"! dont we?

Marina , nice to see you again, I suppose they will , as long as they lead us! I am not a "practicing christian" but I believe there is something out there . Something greater than we are . I would probably be lieing if I said I don't believe in a God. I don't believe mans many interpretations of how it "has to be" though. Very pretty picture there my girl! Peace and serenity to u !
