The world can sometimes seem cruel,
And a lonely place and cold,
Especially when we are down,
and when we are sick or getting old.
But a friend can make things better,
And make the world seem right,
Just with a kind word or smile,
A friend turns our world bright.
Even though the world can be harsh,
And sometimes we feel sad,
Our friends can change all that,
And help us to feel not so bad.
Like the lovely flowers in our garden,
Friends cheer us up each day,
Giving us reason to be happy,
And taking our cares all away.
They are from all races, genders, and creeds,
These understanding compassionate souls.
For the good of all humanity,
Are their worthy and unselfish goals.
These angels of truth and light,
Fill our world with unconditional love,
And we are all much better off for them,
These hallowed ones sent to earth from above.
There are times we just avert an accident,
Or feel something is just not right,
Have second thoughts about a trip,
Or have a sudden burst of insight.
This special angel watches over us,
From our birth unto our death,
And even though our angel we cannot sense,
Sometimes we seem to feel a gentle breath.
