Guardian Angel

I felt the presence
of a shadow coming down
In front of me
Giant wings of courage
protecting me like a feathered shield
Reassuring me, that I wasn't alone
Because, she was right here with me
holding my hand tight
I couldn't shake, my tremors
Soothed by her grasp
Her strength was so powerful
guiding me through
With a sense of tranquility
I felt strong
And then
From out of nowhere
A feather fell onto my shoulder.

And my deep love to you and Lynda, your words on this poem were deeply comforting, I do believe in guardian angels, I'll be back in a few days I have a few stitches on my eye so it's uncomfortable at the moment. But I will promise to catch up I saw you have a new sonnet and I will read really soon.

Thank you...Teddy

I must have one too! Plenty of times I should have died, but here I am, still hanging in there! Must be I still haven't accomplished what I'm here for. I like your idea of Angels! Makes me feel as though there are beings that like us enough to keep us from harm. The line of: "I couldn't shake, even unconciously" a little unwieldy. ~ Geez.

so good to see you, i've had a small operation and i am so glad to say it went very well, obviously times as they are everything is more complicated but i got through it.

you have just chosen the one word i did wonder about, you are so spot on with my work, what i was trying to say is trembling or not whether i was aware or not, so i will come back in a few days and look at this if you have any ideas throw them out, this is truly a poem thats so important to me now, i wrote just two days ago before i went to hospital.

awe so glad to see my friends of Neo!

Thank you...Teddy

So I think I can explain a bit better today what I am trying to say

The angel wouldn't let me shake because she gave me courage
I don't know even now how I could say it better? Throw me some thoughts if you get time.

Thank you...Teddy

or something akin: My tremors soothed by her grasp
Her strength is calming, I shake no more.
