Heavenly Love

I never thought I’d live to know
an angel here on earth
with easy smiles and gentleness
he fuels my soul’s rebirth

He whiles away his daily chores
without complaint with ease
his heart is pure he finds the good
in everything he sees

He tells me that his soul is new
the first time ever here
the cheerfulness his laugh exudes
is music to my ears

I know he’s just a man who lives
a life by golden rule
but ’round him shines an aura bright
a brilliant yellow hue

Its warmth reflects in others’ eyes
in his they see their worth
they’re glad to know this man I love
my angel here on earth
