I was at a place I didn't really
want to be, and was privileged to
see angels working around me.
The angels in heaven were praising
and singing,as the night angel here
on earth was comforting a lady
here on this plane.
With a soothing voice, the night
angel quietly talked to reassure
with a touch of a hand, let her
know someone was there.
There also was a day angel, as busy
as she was took time to cool a
hot brow, talk to this sweet lady
suffering her last days, like she
heard every word.
Give praise to God's angels here on earth,
They do not look like angels but
angels they are,
So bless them, nurses they are,
All around you.
