Angels In Training
Author: Clive B Ringshall


With eyes wide shut we miss to much,
The helping person just giving a hand,
Iíll open the door and see you through,
We see bravery in so many ways,
We see a blessing most everyday,
With eyes wide shut all this we miss,
Unless itís on the 6 oíclock news,
With your heart on that sleeve,
Eyes open not shut,
Take another long look,
People are the same for you and me,
Good and different we all can be,
With your eyes not shut,
Open that door smile hello,
Lets all be an angel to another a day,
After all thatís what we will someday be,
So an angel in training we all can try,
In a week youíll see kindness that flows,
In a week youíll see bravery in places forgotten,
In a week youíll feel better just knowing,
It all starts with You and Me today,

------- Author's Notes -------

I've been blessed by a girl I don't know, She sees so much with her heart open wide, She's been through a lot for her years, I knight you a hero my friend Amy-bannaHead

so nice

This poem says alot I hope others see it. Kindness is so easy to give and it makes the giver and reciever feel good. I collect angels , ornaments, art work,t-shirts anything with angels on it. So many of us are in training to be angels. I hope I make the traing.Hhaaaaa

touched by an angel

some people keep their eyes wide shut
that's why they miss the things in this world
but with eyes wide open from the start
i think we've all let this little angel
touch our hearts...great job clive
