RIP Guardian Angel Poem

Updated on September 23, 2012

All my life, I’ve felt your arms

Wrapped around me tight

I’ve seen you turn my darkest hours

Into days of light


I’ve heard your words so wisely spoken

And felt all my fears slip away

I’ve had your hand to lead me

Through each difficult day


Deep within the white clouds in the wild,

You are my guardian angel

I know your eyes are watching me

And seeing me safely through

As I dream you’ll always be the warmth

That wraps me so tenderly: Like a child


Time passes and you would not

This sentiment that burns me inside

Your lonely lullabies; send me fast asleep


I’ve had your heart to soothe me

Each wound you’ve tried to mend

But now I’m all alone

So when the new sights grow old

And I start to feel cold

I sail back home to you


Grandma, Dear grandma you are-

Truly my very best friend


RIP MY GUARDIAN ANGEL

      Very nice poem to your grandmother. All our sorrows will end and our voices will ring with the loved ones who has gone on before. Never grow old in a land where we will never grow old build by Jesus on high.......

      Keep courage ;)

      A wonderful tribute to your grandmother. She was lucky to have you as her grandchild. I can only hope my own grandmother knows I appreciate her as much as you appreciate yours.

      You know, this is really a great poem. It is well written and easy to follow. And most of all, it is written with a lot of heart. I can see she was a very special woman and influence in your life. And your accompanying picture--what a metaphor! It stopped me and drew me in to your beautiful poem.
