The Lone Angel

One little angel was sitting on the ledge
Carrying a sign that said welcome friends,
Come on in and I’ll make you a pledge.
We’ll have fun and live on the edge.

I’ll try not to fall if you will too,
I’m all alone and feeling a little blue.
One lone angel standing all alone
Just waiting there for someone to atone.

The little angel waits all along
Just waiting for you to belong
It stands between you and the devil
It keeps the battle level.

It can call upon an army to protect you
If a battle should ensue
The lone angel will be there
To say a little prayer for you.

The lone little angel sitting on the ledge
Is the best hope you have as an edge
It will help you get to God
You will think it not the least bit odd.

God is the Savior the angel wants for you
It knows God your life will renew
It will sit there and wait for a clue
And when you are ready it will go to God with you.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.

    ” The Lone Angel ” conveys its sentiments in a reassuringly similar style to that of the James Stewart cinematic classic , “It’s a wonderful life “.
