“Angels without Wings,” New Era, July 2010, 49

Angels without Wings

I see my family differently,

now that things have changed.

It seems that our priorities

are somewhat rearranged.

My parents are my teachers

and help me see the light.

My siblings are my closest friends,

there for me day and night.

Each one is peculiar

in their own amazing way.

They are my positive influences

each and every day.

I’d be lost without them

and what comfort to me each brings.

For my parents and siblings alike

are simply angels without wings.
