Barefoot and dirty,
the little girl just sat in the park
and watched people go by.
She never tried to speak,
she never said a word.
Many people passed,
but not one person
glanced her way,
no one stopped,
including me.
The next day
I decided to go back
to the park,
curious if the little
girl would still be there.
Right in the very spot
she was yesterday,
she sat perched on high,
with the saddest look
in her eyes But today
I could not just walk away,
concerned only with my affairs.
I found myself walking
over to the little girl.
For as we all know,
a park full of strange
people is not a place for
young children to play alone.
As I began walking
towards her,
I could see the back of
the little girl's dress
indicated a deformity.
I figured that was the reason
the people just passed
by and made no effort to care.
As I got closer,
the little girl slightly
lowered her eyes to
avoid my intent stare.
I could see the shape
of her back more clearly.
It was grotesquely shaped
in a humped over form.
I smiled to let her know
it was okay,
I was there to help,
to talk. I sat down
beside her and opened
with a simple "hello."
The little girl acted
shocked and stammered
a "hi" after along stare
into my eyes.
I smiled and she shyly
smiled back.
We talked 'til darkness
fell and the park was
completely empty.
Everyone was gone and
we were alone. I asked
the girl why she was so
sad. The little girl looked
at me and said,
"Because I am different.
"I immediately said "
That you are!" and smiled.
The little girl acted
even sadder, she said,
"I know." "Little girl," I said,
"you remind me of an angel,
sweet and innocent.
"She looked at me
and smiled slowly,
she stood to her feet
and said "Really?"
"Yes, dear, you're like a
little guardian angel sent
to watch over all those
people walking by.
"She nodded her head
'yes' and smiled, and with
that she spread her wings
and said, "I am.
I'm your guardian angel,"
with a twinkle in her eye.
I was speechless,
sure I was seeing things.
She said,
"And when you began
thinking of someone other
than yourself,
my job here was done.
"Immediately I stood to
my feet and said,
"Wait, so why did no one
else stop to help an angel?"
She looked at me and smiled,
"You're the only one
who could see me,"
and she was gone.
With that my life
was changed dramatically.
When you think you're
all you have; remember,
your angel is always
watching over you.
Mine was....
