Bedside Angel Poem by Jim O'Donnell


Dear Angel standing in the dark
That friend of mine who will never part
Your love your trust your guiding light
Watching over me this night

For you I cannot see
You’re in the dark at the side of me
Guarding my every breath
You’re a beating light inside my chest

Keeping me away from harm
No restless sleep all is calm
You talk to me in my sleep
And in my mind, you I will keep
