Shannon is a passionate individual whose feelings and thoughts tend spill onto the pages, often in the form of poetry and sometimes essays.
This particular hub was inspired by my daughter, who lovingly told me one morning that I was her angel as she wrapped her arms around me for a hug. Additionally, she has asked if I love her the most. Unfortunately, I cannot tell her this is so, as I have two other children. Instead, I informed her that my heart has lots of room for love and was immediately asked if it would ever pop.
Also, in the course of other conversations, I have come to think about all of the angels that have appeared in my life. Some of them remain friends, some of them came for just a moment in time and remain strangers, and others stayed for awhile only to have to go on their way again. Nonetheless, these angels of the earthly kind are most appreciated.
As long as I'm around, you can always count on me
My love for you, it will not stop
Because my heart has lots of room, you see
You can fill it with love right to the top
But my heart can always hold more love
Though you are not the only one within my heart to set up shop
This one thing you can be sure of
My heart may ever grow bigger, but it will never pop!
Angels of the Earthly Kind
I believe in angels, if only of the earthly kind
They come like blessings from above
You never know when they'll be there to find
To show you unexpected displays of love
They come to you when you're about to lose the fight
To offer you a hand back up off the ground
Like a lighthouse beacon in the middle of the long, dark night
They always seem to just in time come around
Whether you need a hug, a friend, or something more
So don't you despair and don't you lose heart
You never know, an angel might be knocking at your door
To deliver you out of the depths of the dark
