What are Angels?

Are they spirits or souls of our loved ones past?

Do they fill the sky woth candles lit for their prayers?

Or are they lights of the prayers of others?

Which have been given the name of "Stars"?

_______________

What are Angels?

Are they servents of God?

Do they run an office,

Filled with stack of unanswered letters,

With the thoughts of the less fortunate?

Or are they volunteers which help others on their journey to a new home?

Which has been given the name of "Heaven"?

_________

What are Angels?

Are they in you or me?

Do they make us what we are,

By controlling our actions from birth?

Or are they the emotion which akes us feel good?

Which has been given the name of"Happiness"?

_____________

What are Angels?

Are they the birds of the afterlife?

Do they surround the clouds with their song?

Or is the song the voices of the choir in the chapel.

Which has been given the name of "Hymes"?

___________

What are Angels?

Why do we ask?

Angels are a mistery,

The work of Angels are all around,

The Angels I see is in the happiness of the people,

Which do not seak Happiness,

Which do not seak Heaven,

And which do not need to prove anything,

These people to me,

Deserver to be given the name of "Angels".
