Virginia Wylie: Fairy Angels

I have had many caretakers and this poem is a tribute to all of them.

Are fairies angels after all?
It’s hard to tell, they are so small

Tiny wings do brush my ear
With touch of kindness, hope, and cheer

Whispered words do speak of care
I’m fully open, keen, aware

Those twinkling lights and voices bright
Promise that I’ll be all right

With fairy angels by my side
I know with faith I shall abide.
