They call me Alaurilee

I've been writing poetry from the age of 12. It has, and always will be my outlet, my voice. Join me on my journey . . . I can write about almost anything. :) ~ Life doesn't come with a shiny new book; no users manual of answers to find with one look. Life comes with doors that open and shut; and paths laid before us to be followed or passed up. There's things we can learn and things we may teach; hearts that may find us and souls we may reach. Guaranteed on this journey are teacups of tears; and pains that might hurt us may age us by years. But the beauty of life, love, laughter and giving; come from serving hugs on a platter each and every day we're living. ~

Angels are Amoung us

An angel came to us one day
in the shape of a little girl.
She was born into a family
giving life on Earth a whirl.

A Mom and Dad to love her,
and two big sisters too.
She was made of smiles and laughter,
and gorgeous eyes of blue.

Their precious little cuddle monkey,
sweeter than homemade pie.
She grew and loved to learn,
with a twinkle in her eye.

This little girl, so young and sweet
was wise beyond her years.
To look into those bright blue eyes
was to watch her mind shifting gears.

Their busy baby loved life.
She grew in leaps and bounds.
Then one fateful day,
frightful cancer came around.

This little girl fought so hard.
At times we thought she'd beat it.
But an angels work is never done.
There were places she was needed.

In the loving arms of her family;
and surrounded by Gods love.
Her breath became so very soft,
as the angels watched from above.

They beckoned her to come on home.
Her work on Earth complete.
Her angel wings were waiting,
up in her heavenly suite.

Although the tears would be many;
for on Earth she'd been adored.
The work she'd do in Heaven,
would touch so many more.

She'd leave behind a family,
who'd given her such love.
And peacefully watch over them all,
sending blessings from Heaven above.

Inspired by a beautiful, blue-eyed little girl named @LaylaGrace who is in the end stages of a vicious battle with Neuroblastoma. At 2 years old she's fought a brave fight. Her loving family and their strength in God has helped them stay strong during this fight. Even in the adversity of it all, they have not lost their faith in God's blessings and love. The world is blessed to share every little moment they are granted by having known Layla Grace. Even as I write this for an angel, I continue praying for a miracle that will heal this little girl and allow her to stay with her family on Earth.

Layla went to play with the angels...
