The Owl


He sits outside

He is hiding

Awaiting to be seen

Patiently watching

At midnight

I can hear you


Loudly and slowly

All other sound dissipates

As I listen to your


The tears stop


The angry voice

At the other end

Of the receiver

Is drowned out

Through your



Looking over me

I hear you

I feel you

Sending me

Your strength

Your wisdom

From beyond

Hi Ediie thank you for the advice! I think the owl is my spirit guide. :) I am glad that you got home safely and the owl helped you. :)

Sounds like the owl may be your spirit guide Caroline, follow its wisdom, it will guide you to safety, an owl warned me of danger the other night while driving and I got home safe.
