“You'll meet more angels on a winding path than on a straight one.”

Terri Guillemets


Music: Angels Among Us


We had a fundraiser last Saturday night

For all of the homeless orphans on the street

And we brought our latest furry angelic orphan

People stood in line, this one they wanted to meet


Our winding path, had led us to an old dilapidated garage

Inside it was this angel, trapped inside it, dwelling in its hell

I believe angels do exist in many forms, they are all around us

Their mission is to remind us that on earth, more than men dwell


They are here to remind us all, that we are supposed to be, their guardians

And the staunch advocates, of all of the other life forms, here on this planet

They suffer, so that other earthly creatures will hopefully, be spared their fate

They are here among us, to remind us, not to take any god-given life for granted


And this one named ‘Newbee’ is the perfect representative for all street orphans

His very presence at this fund raiser, helped us to raise, both money and awareness

And soon, we hope that this furry angel, will be able to retire, and to live peacefully

Since tomorrow, on my winding path, I know I’ll meet yet another angel, on its quest


We had a fundraiser last Saturday night,

For all the homeless orphans on the street;

And we brought our latest furry angelic orphan,

People stood in line, this one they wanted to meet.

I'd like to meet them all, pat their heads and pet them gently. Make sure there's plenty of food and water and a place to roam outside where they can engage the neighborhood in ways we humans never will. Little Angels, fly.

A fierce-looking dog once met me on the road
Then he wagged his tail and licked my legs...

You, my friend, are an angel too...I do hope that precious little NewBee finds the love he deserves....the heartlessness of some humans makes me sick to my stomach....

The Christmas spirit never leaves you Ed, it carries on all year, bless you, for doing what you are a gentle angel yourself.
Reviewed by Amber Moonstone 12/3/2012
Ed. Such an angel deserves to be cared for. I hope Newber goes to a fine home. This poem is very heart warming. Thank you for starting out my day on such a positive and beautiful note!
Peace love and light
