The Angel They Never See

Updated on May 22, 2013

It takes a lot of humility to be a root under a tree
What happens above ground, you will never see
The birds sing songs about things you do not know
But they do not know how you make beauty grow

Don’t remember
Just forgive

It takes a lot of humility to help anonymously
If you give on the corner nobody else will see
The birds fly over unable to feather his nest
But your kindness was able to help his mind rest

Just forget
Don’t relive

It takes a lot of humility to give someone the glory
If you are happy then let them tell the story
For as God keeps his promise to birds that do not save
He knows you because Jesus was to whom you gave

Don’t take
Just give

      Thank you Joanne, Kiss and Tales, Nellieanna and sariasaeed... it was just something that came to mind. A simple message to remind myself of how I should be.... it's a goal... still working on it...
