The Angels Among Us

A Poem by Colton Warr


“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” Abraham Lincoln


Have you seen it?

I have, the glimpse of God’s love

I’ve seen it in my Mothers heart

As wholesome and pure as a dove


Have you heard it?

I have, the music of an Angels harp

I’ve heard it in my Mothers voice

A word of love when standing on the scarp


Have you felt it?

I have, the calming of a friends touch    

I’ve felt it in my Mothers hand

A constant healing, even now is such


Have you heard it?

I have, the sound of a raging battle

I’ve listened to it my whole life 

And for me, until she is gone she will be embattled

 

Have you seen it?

I have, the light ever-burning through the black of night

I’ve seen it in my Mothers love

She is Gods star in my life, shining ever-so bright


*****


A Mother has a divine and glorious purpose to love her children

Through sunny and stormy days, like a shepherd, she will tend

My Mother is my hero, unsung and tough

And my family would agree, she is an Angel Among Us

I like how you incorporated the five senses, making your reader really be able to not just read, but feel your poem. It really added a lot to this piece. Good work :)

My pleasure.
Second stanza suggestion: I have, the music of an Angels harp
Suggestion-> I have, the music of an Angel's harp

Filth stanza suggestion: She is Gods star in my life, shining ever-so bright
Suggestion-> She is God's star in my life, shining ever-so bright
~*~
Such minor things though.
This is a lovely piece. I wouldn't know much about a mother's true love, but I just watched a cute show called Angelic Layer about a mother and her daughter.
Anyway, well played!
