Angel of Peace and Hope
She leans forward,
hair falling over her perfect face.
Her gentle hands reach out
to brush away tears,
straighten weary, sagging shoulders,
lift heads drooping with sorrow and exhaustion.
But she is only one....
one tiny angel of love and peace and hope
against the insanity
of hatred and greed.
So tiny...so tired from the effort....so determined
to touch every broken bleeding heart.
She will serve until she can serve no more.
Blessed angel be with us now,
for now the need is great.
