My Little Gardian Angel

This is my little Flat Fanny Guardian Angel.I had so much fun designing her dress and wings.

Written by
Otha Bob Young

Close your eyes and say good night
Soon the angels begin to fly
Don't ask why angels fly
They only fly for believers
Like you and I

Once when I was so much younger
Much the same as you tonight
With a heart so filled with wonder
I heard the thunder
I saw the angels fly

And so be very still
Oh so still
Because the angels
Will hide until
You close your eyes
...until you close your eyes

Otha Bob Young was a high school friend of mine.
He was a singer and song writer for
Juice Newton and the Silver Spur.

Otha wrote this beautiful sweet song for his daughter.
He died last year after a difficult battle with cancer.
He was a fine man with a huge heart.

This post is in memory of Otha Bob Young.

Hi Dogwood. Your gardian angel is very sweet and a perfect compliment to your friend Otha's poem. It is very precious as I am certain your friendship with him was. May your memories serve you well and your gardian angel keep you smiling.
