Angels live among us and walk with us on earth.
Sometimes we do not notice or realize their worth.

Is it the one who shares your life, who lives with you each day;
The one who holds you close, and loves you in every way?

Was it the dad who fed you, and kissed you every night,
The one who held you in his arms, when nothing seemed to go right?

Was it the Mom who cared for you, and made that house a home,
The one who always loved you; no matter where you roamed?

Was it the child you rocked to sleep; that grew to be your friend,
The one you know will love you right up to the very end?

Yes angels walk among us, in our loved ones and our friends.
Or maybe it was that stranger, who so willing her hand did lend.

Who is that person beside you? Look close, if you will dare.
It may be you are looking at an angel unaware.
