by Elizabeth Newton

In Spirit

I have left the earth,

But I am still about,

I kiss your cheek at night

When your light is out.


I am the wind

That blows in your hair,

I am spirit now,

I am near.


I sit on your shoulder,

I see all that you do,

My body is gone,

Still my love is with you.


When times are tough,

I hold your hand,

You are never alone,

Together we stand.


If you are in trouble,

I shall help you out,

I am your instinct

When you doubt.


I am the angel

Assigned to you,

You shall never be alone,

For I am next to you.
