Saw an angel by the flagpole,
Just the other day lined up for school,
Quivering the way our knees go weak
Our tears spill out we cannot speak.
Today’s the same, emotions gather.
These kids of ours we hold so dear,
Prayers and blessings all, our happy cheer,
Celebrate with us today this gift
Forever even as the continents drift.
Is there even time in forever’s thrall?
My only other wedding toast?
Embarrassing, I fear I turned it to a roast.
You know how words bewitch the thoughts we say?
The moon already risen in the day
Magic under spell of love’s bouquet?
You are many:
On the outs, declare a truce
Happy? Celebrate, find a way
Daylight moon is magic you can use
Moon and stars all day
Happy, rejoice and take note
Share a sunrise, renew and share
Meet some one new, intentions are clear, learn a dance together
In trouble, know we’ll be your coat
Be open to each other
We are joined together through these bonds today
Maybe someone you don’t know, or friends across the sea
Reach out, reinvest, talk about a future
Together make a plan
All of us, bless this time together.
We never saw the flag get raised that day
Blinked away the tears and she was gone
Quivering the way our knees go week
Today’s the same, emotions turn to prayer.
Angel always here, knows my words
Silent hopes, dreams of peace, and our oriole birds
Blessings of love always may they join these two
Let their dreams come true
Their very own angel till the end of days.
My angel always.
