Wrapped in Your Angel Wings. ~ Brandie Smith {Poem}

My mother, my angel.

I have known you more as the constant flutter in my heart.

The warrior spirit that has guided me in the times I’ve wandered aimlessly.

Lost in my thoughts.

Hiding from my heart.

Your wings have encompassed my tired body as I lay momentarily broken and confused.

Drying my tears with the soft breeze of your breath.

Your love radiates from the deepest center of my being.

The love that only a mother can give.

For you are an earthly piece of me;

As I am a heavenly piece of you.

There are moments when I can still hear your laugh;

See the sparkle in your eyes;

Smell the mixture of your shampoo and perfume;

Feel the warmth of your powerful embrace.

The 7-year-old girl within my heart longs for you;

Loves you;

Wishes for more of you.

Your beautiful spirit and life giving brilliance.

You will always live in my moments of courage;

When I sparkle.

When I crumble.

When I love so deeply that I feel like my insides are going burst.

You, my dear mother, are my angel.

And, I will always be wrapped in your wings.
