God’s Green Angel

A Shamrock for Ellie

I am your friend-––
I exist to care for you.

I am a child of God's green world––
A brother of all that lives.

By day, I open my wings to the sky––
By night, I watch for the dawn and pray.

Out of my love for you
I offer white flowers to beautify the light
   of your eye.

For the sustenance you share with me,
I open my heart, to give you joy.

When you come near to me on a happy day
   I will make you smile.
When you are sad, I will comfort you.

I am God's servant, His blessing for you––
And I am your friend,
   Now, and evermore.
