~ The Angel In The Sand ~


The other day upon the sand,
I watched the lovers stroll...
So envious of them was I,
It shook my very soul!

Just then an Angel came to me,
As sure as you are here...
And said these very words to me,
Distinctly, and so clear!

"Don't envy what you see today,
For it can be yours, too!
Just listen to the things I say...
Here's what you need to do...

Always listen with your heart,
Your ears are sure to follow...
Always eat your humble pie,
Be not afraid to swallow...

Never let the sun go down,
Bitter words upon your tongue...
Don't begrudge your graceful age,
And wish that you were young...

Always look upon your lover,
As if you've never seen before...
Love him, and abide by him,
And show him he's adored...

At every opportunity,
Hold hands, and laugh, and sing...
You can't imagine all the strength
These simple things will bring...

Keep within your heart the warmth
You felt with his first touch...
And always think of his needs first,
Show you love him very much...

There's a worried look within your eye...
I've seen that look before...
You think you're giving way too much,
To one you would adore...

Trust me child, implicitly,
I know of what I speak...
Love is not timidity...
Nor is it for the weak...

Love must stand against all foes,
And yet be soft as rain...
Flourish in your laughter's light,
Yet endure the strongest pain...

Your hearts must be united,
In your quest for happiness...
Love must be all encompassing,
Yet independent, none the less...

I see the question in your eyes...
How can these two things be....
You must be individuals,
Strong independently...

But, Love is not about one's self...
It's surrendering your heart,
To the one you know has captured it...
Completely from the start...

Put your faith in God to lead
Your paths together bound...
And faith within each other,
To treasure what you've found...

Keep unto each other,
Faithful, strong, and true...
And do unto each other,
What you'd like done to you...

Ever nourish, in your heart,
The seed that Love has planted...
And most importantly of all...
Don't take it for granted!"

It was then that I awoke...
Had it been just a dream...
I looked around me in the sand,
And saw the trinket gleam....

A tiny angel held a heart,
Gold, glistening in the sun...
But, as I looked more closely...
I knew she was the one...

The Angel who had spoken,
With words so soft and pure...
Of that I am most certain,
I've never been so sure...

And then I thought I saw her wink,
A smile lit up her eyes...
Her wisdom, unmistakable...
Her wit, supremely wise...

I'll never look at Love the same...
It's so much purer now...
It isn't just a whimsy...
Love is a sacred vow!

I'm so thankful to my Angel,
And that day upon the sand....
When I learned of Love and giving,
And of God's Master Plan!
