Angels Walk Among Us

                                                Angels walk among us, here for a time
                                                With wings swift and free as the wild birds fly
                                                Strumming their harps so divine
                                                They are not gone, loved ones never die

                                                Their unseen presence is here to stay
                                                As certain as the stars at night and dawn
                                                To lift us when we stumble each day
                                                With assurance to grow and stay strong

                                                 If we could see beyond a sorrow
                                                 Beyond a present grief, as God can see
                                                 We would then know that some tomorrow
                                                 Will still hold promises for you and me

                                                 When the valleys are low and almost dark
                                                  Look towards the sky of endless blue
                                                 Where the hills are gold with light
                                                 And the angels play music brand new

                                                 Dance to the lyrics of beautiful melodies
                                                 Through many a lonesome and dreary day
                                                 May it fill your heart with love and peace
                                                 Knowing they are just a memory away

                                                  Susie Swanson, 2013

Thank you all in advance for the sweet and encouraging words on mine.. Ya'll take care and Stay Well.. Blessings, Susie


  1. So sorry your sick. Take a glove of garlic crushed 3 times a day with food. Crush it and mix with a spoonful of honey,syrup or applesauce. Its the best antibiotic!!! You can even make garlic tea. (google the recipe)

  9. Hi Susie, I'm so sorry to hear that you are sick again. You sure have had a time of it this year. I hope the medicine is beginning to work for you and that you are feeling a little better each day. This is such a beautiful poem, so caring and compassionate. The last stanza really reminded me of my mother because she always loved to dance. Even when she was in her wheelchair she would move her hands to the music. Sometimes I would turn up the music and dance around her chair, it would always make her laugh. It does help in times of sorrow to know that that there is still so much beauty and goodness around us. That we can see the personality of our heavenly Father in all of his creations, his love and his desire for us to be happy. And that he too holds all our loved ones in his memory. Have a lovely sunday! With Love, Delisa :) P.S. Since I can't be there I'll send you some "pretend" chicken soup and a plate of hot biscuits! Feel better soon!
