I received two poems today, #37 and #38 (so check them both out). For this first one, I simply listened …

Wholesome and carefree
In the days of your youth
No worries to trouble you.

How life changes through the years
See the difference with your tears
All the struggle takes a toll
Leaves you feeling less than whole

Buried memories rise to the surface
And fester like a sore
Oozing pain forever more
Unless you find a way to get beneath the worry and distraction
Take some action
To uncover
You’ll discover
There’s a host of help to get you through
No more wondering how to do
The things you struggled with before
Waiting for you like an open door
A welcome party with open arms
Smiling faces glowing in the light
We want to help and make it right

Come to us when things get tough
Bumps get rough
It’s our job to smooth the road
We can help with troubles untold

A phalanx of angels we stand tall
Willing to help you with it all
You’re not alone
Can’t you feel us here?
Talk to us, we’ll lend an ear
And bathe you in the golden light
That warms our world both day and night

Comfort is what we will bring
Soft our voices they will sing
And rock you gently in our arms
Keep you safe from harm

Here we stand
To lend a hand
If you’ll but call usWe’ll be there
