Maybe it will take an Angel

My love doesn't need a manger
to hold the new born sun.
My heart has known glad tidings
and that joy and peace will come.

For we can not all be shepherds,
and our voice may not be heard.
In among the haste and flurry,
of this very modern world.

No matter how long we've pondered,
this strange life and its bold decree.
I know that most are still afraid,
to be all that we could be.

So maybe it will take an angel,
to whisper gentle in our ear,
to tell us that it's okay to shine,
that it's the reason we are here.

Written for the Sunday Whirl using all of the words. Not great poetry, but I did my best! :-)

Wishing you all
love, peace and much joy!

Forgive my absence for so long...it has been a tough 3 months and I've done what I could to keep writing. Unfortunately it meant my time reading was basically nil. In the quietness of tonight, I am making an attempt to return to visiting blogs. And I'm so happy to have found this post in doing so! That last verse?? It's what I needed to hear this very moment. Thank you.
