A Wing and A Prayer

Hey fellow bloggers,

Yesterday’s post was pretty dark and I apologize for that. I try not to allow myself to “go there”, so I would like to switch gears. I found a poem on FamilyFriendsPoems.com. This poem was written for the author’s sister who struggles with cancer. Please enjoy her words as I have and I pray it gives you courage, if that is what you seek, like myself.

Stay strong, warriors โค๏ธ

A Wing and A Prayer by Michelle Butler

Under the wing of an angel, we feel protected

Through prayers to God, we feel connected


Peace is said to be offered on the wings of a dove

Prayers can bring peace along with hope, faith, and love


Wings of a jet plane provide steady flight

I pray you remain steady and strong through this fight


Butterflies have wings to fly playfully free

And free from this monster is what I pray you’ll soon be


Birds spread their wings as they may leave their nest

We’re spreading our prayers that you’ll always be Blessed


Go fight and win this battle you didn’t start

On the wings of an angel and prayers from my heart

  1. “Go fight and win this battle you didnโ€™t start” ~ Beautiful lines, thank you for sharing! It’s okay to “go into the dark” at times, so long as we still keep a light within us, no matter how small. I think you’ve kept it alight for yourself, and now are sharing it with others.

  2. Wonderful poem. I chose it for my English class and I was analyzing it so I just have a question and I don’t know if you ever going to see my comment but the question is is the line “Under the wing of an angel, we feel protected.” symbolize something or is it a symbolism of the wings of angles. I don’t know if it is or not a symbolism. I even asked my teacher but she doesn’t know and she told me that I have to figure that out on my own.


  3. Actually it was my cousin I wrote it for, I have no siblings. I am so touched and flattered that you liked and shared my poem. I had no idea, and just stumbled upon your harotianssentials .org site and saw. Hope it could help or comfort someone. Wishing happiness,
    Michelle Butler, Author
