Somtimes i think that
my loved ones who have died,
are now those beautiful things
that fly high in the

I swear i saw a robin cry,
but you had the feeling that it was tears of

The robin came back same time,
same place,
id feed it everytime,

then when there was nothing left
he would just sit there and stare at me for about ten minutes,

it was a very soothing feeling looking into his eyes,
on this day it spoke,

it said 'everything is going to be alright'

A robin as an angel never thought about that, but the next time I see one I think I will talk to one of those little Angels....This is a really good poem!!!!!!

You do it!!!!

I'm glad to see that you've posted the Robin poem! Like Tammy stated, it is very angelic about the robin, and how it changes your perspective....

by the way..

Hello again Hushy! I meant to say, you did it!!! Also, I agree that some insects, and animals, are angels.... While you look into their eyes, it's almost like commuting with each other.....
