A Special Poem

Angels Among Us… A Poem That Gives You Goosebumps…

      A drunk man in an Oldsmobile – They said had run the light – 

That caused the six-car pileup – On 109 that night.
      When broken bodies lay about – "And blood was everywhere," 
"The sirens screamed out eulogies," – For death was in the air.
     "A mother, trapped inside her car," – Was heard above the noise; – 
Her plaintive plea near split the air:  
"Oh, God, please spare my boys!"
      She fought to loose her pinned hands; "She struggled to get free," – 
But mangled metal held her fast – In grim captivity.
      Her frightened eyes then focused – "On where the back seat once had been," –
But all she saw was broken glass and
Two children’s seats crushed in. – Her twins were nowhere to be seen; – 
"She did not hear them cry, "

"And then she prayed they’d been thrown free, "  
"Oh, God, don’t let them die! "

Then firemen came and cut her loose, " – "But when they searched the back, " – 
"They found therein no little boys, "

But the seat belts were intact. – 
They thought the woman had gone mad – "And was traveling alone, "
"But when they turned to question her, " – They discovered she was gone.

Policemen saw her running wild – And screaming above the noise – 

In beseeching supplication,  – Please help me find my boys!

  They’re four years old and wear blue shirts; – "Their jeans are blue to match." –

One cop spoke up, "They’re in my car, 

And they don’t have a scratch. – 

They said their daddy put them there – "And gave them each a cone, "

  Then told them both to wait for Mom – To come and take them home. – 

"I’ve searched the area high and low, "
        But I can’t find their dad. – "He must have fled the scene, " – 
"I guess, and that is very bad."

 "The mother hugged the twins and said, " – "While wiping at a tear, " – 

"He could not flee the scene, you see, "

  "For he’s been dead a year."

        "The cop just looked confused and asked, " – "Now, how can that be true? " – 

"The boys said, " – "Mommy, Daddy came "

   "And left a kiss for you." – He told us not to worry – 

"And that you would be all right, "

And then he put us in this car with – "The pretty, flashing light. "

"We wanted him to stay with us, " – "Because we miss him so, " – 

"But Mommy, he just hugged us tight " – And said he had to go. 

        He said someday we’d understand – "And told us not to fuss, " – 

"And he said to tell you, Mommy, " – "He’s watching over us."

The mother knew without a doubt – "That what they spoke was true, " –

"For she recalled their dad’s last words, " 
" I will watch over you."

The firemen’s notes could not explain –  "The twisted, mangled car, " –

And how the three of them escaped 
 Without a single scar.       

  "But on the cop’s report was scribed, " – "In print so very fine, "              
An angel walked the beat tonight on Highway 109.
