Everyone has their own different interpretations of each poem. So, I'm not going to tell you how you're supposed to grasp it, but rather explain why I wrote it.

My mother is extremely special to me and I love her more than words could explain. She's protected me, listened to me, never judged me, or tried to choose for me. She's always been there right behind me. If I fell she would catch me and hold me. She wouldn't let go till I was sure I wanted to try it again. I can't remember a time when she wasn't there for me and I doubt I ever will.

My mother, my best friend, my angel, my world - it's her who sheds love, laughter, and endless happiness to my life.

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life - Family Poems

Angel
Right when I was born
the lord sent me an angel.
An angel to protect me,
An angel to watch over and love me.

I always sought advise from her
all throughout the years.
I depended on her every thought.
And it was always her
who wiped away my tears.
She taught me many things -
"To always speak from the heart".
She always showed she loved and cared,
It her to always understand.
She never intentionally hurt me,
and for that
she has all my love.
She's the angel -
The angel sent from high above.

She knows most of my secrets,
right down to my first kiss.
She knows my length of patience
and still she always forgives.
All she has to do is look at me,
and deep down within my soul
she'd see
If I was hurt, scared, or happy.
She knows all the sides to me.

She was the one who carried me through
those nine painful months.
The one who made me the lady I am
And the woman I'll become.
God must have had a really good day,
when he sent you here for me.
Of all the angels in heaven,
You were meant for me.

    You dont really have to believe in angels to believe this poem. But it will be easier to understand and if you really do believe in angels than you will know that there really are angels out there, wathcing over you.

    I was adopted 55 years ago, and in a month will meet my brothers and sisters for the first time. I always thought of my birth mother as I was growing up, knowing how much she had to love me to let me go. Your poem described exactly how I felt about her. She was my angel. thank you Theresa
  • Cindy
    This poem left nothing to be spared for all the love, honor and tears a mother has to bear. For a youth to truly understand this is beyond their years, God does have an angel on their shoulder and God bless her for being able to recognize the strengths not only in her MOM but in HERSELF as well! GOOD LUCK TO YOU AND LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD . . .
