Stepping In

Woken to a sigh…

Movement caught the eye.

Labored tug of bedsheet,

Nudge the dog aside.

What could that possibly be?

An angel passing by?

The animals look sleepily

at her as she slips out the door.

Odd they have not bothered to follow across the floor.

Round the hall. Down the stairs.

Hearing it again.

A gasp of air. A breath of sighs.

An angel passing by?

Shrugging and curious she steps into the light.

Surrounded by a glorious Love, she cannot hide.

The animals have followed her.

Quietly standing by.

As she sees the angels standing by her side.
