In the deepest recesses of my thoughts alone
I listen carefully to the soft tone
Of ancient laughter, sobs and cheers
The stillness of the voices I silently hear.

I recognize some of family, mother, father, friend
Some make me smile, some I donít comprehend
Even today, after years of remembering what was heard
The chatter takes on the twittering of many birds.

But in the darkness, in moonlight soft and quiet
The Whisperings present a tumultuous riot.
Wondering faintly, is this my conscience speaking
Or the sound of angelsí comments as they are peeking?

I know the Angels are around, I feel them in my heart
Whispering quiet and low, soft, never sharp
Asking one another if they have guided me right
Gently beseeching Him to keep me in his light.

All children know their Angelsí Whispers, but forget as they grow
That the Angels will watch through all of the times
Whether troubled, happy, or seemingly ruined in kind
Nevertheless the angels stay and whisper soft hope to the mind.

Is it ďConscienceĒ or Angelsí Whispers do you think?
Which would cause you more to smile?
Iíd like to think it is my Fatherís voice in the guise of an angel,
Taking care of me all the while.

So keep Whispering on, my Angels dear
And guide me with your thoughts of care
Knowing that you trust in me to step kindly throughout
My Fatherís world, and his creations dear. Amen

Elizabeth, Nan and Christine

Thank you for welcoming me to this new outlet for my thoughts. I have many more, some of which I have posted at AngelHaven.com, a truly wonderful place. I enjoy going to areas that are free of the blackness so many seem to enjoy: I hope I can do you all proud with my submissions. Thank you again.

Sunshine, I like all your photos.The sun always shining on your hair, and your beautiful smile cause you to personify Sunshine. But more,I love your work.This one hit home as I indeed always felt the closeness of past family memers coming to the fore to help and guide me as I go through this unsettled life. best, marty

Becka, don't know if you'll come back to read this, but this poem was submitted to the main site years ago...

and from that, I recently received a very nice letter from a church lady in another state [Missouri] who asked if she could place it in her Church newsletter.

You can imagine my pleasure over saying, "yes, surely...thank you".  I am glad you found some solace from it, as well.

That is QUITE the compliment!!     
And I seem to be finding a lot of solace here on this wonderful site...it is a warm welcome to an end of a very rough year for me last year.  

God bless, m'friend! --  Becka

Becka, the archives are an amazing place where one can wander at their leisure...and enjoy so many poets, past and present...who left their treasures behind, just for us...

I just realized you and I have a poem of similar names, mine is The Whisperlings, I think anyway, but the quality of two are sure different.  What a nice entrance poem Karilea, much has not changed.

A little bumparoo - because "I can!"

Sharon, I missed this...I swear.  But thank you...and I believe I remember seeing your poem.  I think, over time, we have both grown in ways we never expected.  Thank you so much, m'friend, for coming back and bumping this, "because" you could!
