About the Poem

Are angels real? We may never know. But we all have to wonder if God's creatures, so full of grace and truth, really watch over us. Do they have feelings? Do they cry? Do they love? Do they get angry? All these things are mysteries to us. But we must believe. For angels are what gives us hope in times of despair.

How does an angel have hope in its time of trouble? This is what I believe.

Angel Teardrops

My guardian angel, once careless and free,
flew into the clouds and lost touch with me.
Her tears were cold and wet, falling on my face.
Her smile had left us without a trace.

Her angelic lips quivered, frozen and scared,
I felt rain clouds visiting, and had to prepare.
I knew that angels, often content,
were very special presents that God had sent.

To see one so sad,
so afraid,
so alone,
had made me weep while the cold winds had blown.

Her wings lost feathers,
comforting and soft,
falling from the stars,
floating aloft.

Her pain was felt throughout the land,
to feel true misery is impossible to stand.
I prayed so that when her hurting stops,
I'll be able to taste the angel's teardrops.

kara
This poem is by far the best when I've read on this page. It reminds me of when I lost someone in my family and how the angel just cried and cried. The odd thing about that day though is that it was raining. I felt I could feel the angel teardrops. I think you are a great writer and you should pursue that as a career. This poem could touch a million hearts, I know it did mine.

jenny
This poem is so real, in January of this year i was sick and hospitalized, but the dec. of 2005 my little sister whom had struggled all her life with 12 heart surgerys and survived all of them, (only god knows why she was born without a splean) was killed in a car accident and so we burried her and then like i said i became sick while being pregnant they took my baby while i was in a coma and for 2 weeks and them losing me i finally made it back to life. Why this poem is so great is because i was at a loss for my life and my little sister whom God to to heaven talked to me and sent me back to be with my life long love and my 3 children. I consider her my little sister BRE my GUARDIAN ANGEL she had just turned 18 and i 35 it was like having a ANGEL ALL TO MYSELF. So I came acrossed this poem and of course the tears fell because you see it's almost been a year since her life was taken away. thank you so much, jenny

hi, i´m from germany so sorry for my english may suck. about your poem, i really really love, because sometimes i felt like everything godd has disappeared an i was standing in the middle of nowhere. i felt very forsaken, left, alone and if guardians exist, i thought, then it seems like mine really hates me or just had more important stuff to do then protect me. it really touched me, you write in a beautifully touching way, and i think you´re a great writer. congratulations Coco
