For every tear that trickles down

And runs just like a river-

For every face that wears a frown

For Rage it would deliver –

For every heart that aches in vain

And every silent cry

For every Soul that writhes in pain

For every heavy sigh.

Hope is on the hillside

Love is in the wind

Courage has her arms stretched wide

Truth is your best friend –

Understanding is awake

She listens to your woe

Forgiveness knows mistakes you make

She rocks you to and fro –

Hate and Anger have no home

They’d like to live with you

Destruction despises being alone

He’ll come to haunt you too –

So call upon the Angels

Know that you are Dear

Shout ‘I LOVE ME’ to the sky

Let your Angels hear –

Know that they are with you

Just look inside your heart

Don’t let Fear tell what to do

Tell him to depart –

When you’re weary from the pain

Take Courage by the hand

Know your God is with you

And a thousand Angels stand –

They’re all around you

They’ll guide you on your way

So wipe those tears from your eyes

And Smile at this New Day.

Deborah Mann.

  1. Absolutely love this poem. I love it when they stir up that emotion that evokes more thoughts…and plants a seed for doing my own poetry. Beautiful and well done! Shared. 🙂
