A Visit From An Angel



As I sat beside the bed side

Keeping vigil with my friend

Watching his life drift away

Waiting for the end


My thoughts turned to the inevitable

What happens when we are dead?

Do we survive the material?

These thoughts were in my head


As I watched my friend drift away

The room was filled with light

An angel from the Spirit world

Came to him that night


I felt no fear or foreboding

These words she spoke to me

Do not be saddened with grief

For death has set him free


Free to pursue a life in heaven

Re-united with love ones and friends

Now into a spiritual atmosphere

Into a life that never ends


She smiled at me as they left

With these words to me she said

My child do not be afraid

For your friend is alive not dead


My child do not be afraid

For your friend is alive not dead

I was left with that inner peace

Knowing my friend would be all right


It changed my life completely

Of an angel that came so near

Knowing that death is natural

And there is nothing for us to fear.

  2. Great poem, like the other said, the words truly spoke to me and it felt like I was right there talking to the angel.


  3. I agree with Elaine. This poem spoke to me. I know without any shadow of doubt that my dad, who recently passed is with God. Great poem!
