As I face myself through teary eyes
I don’t recognize my reflection
A shadow of my former self
I see a fraud, a coward a sad soul
Too ashamed to seek guidance
And always thinking I’m not good enough.
As I stand alone unsure what to do
I hear a sweet whisper in my ear,
Saying “Stay strong, have faith
I will guide you and protect you”
As I turn around to catch a glimpse
I see brightness but was oh so brief,
There was a comfort in this whisper
My spirits lifted, soaring so high
As I lay down and close my eyes
I feel relaxed and calm,
I drifted off.
In my dream I awoke
There stood the angel that I hoped
Once again I hear a whisper
Saying “I’m here to give you hope
And stand by your side”
