A friend (a dear friend) of mine sent this poem to me. It made me cry. There have been times in my life where I have questioned if there was anyone "out-there". This gave me goose bumps. See for yourself.

A drunken 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

"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


"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


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."

Totally crying right now. THat just gave me total chills. I totally belive these things happen. Do you remember that country song a few years back by John Michael Montgomery called "Little Girl"

It is about a little girl who's dad kills her mom and then himself while she hid behind the couch. Her new foster family takes her to church and she see's a picture of Jesus and says I know that man but I dont know his name. He was with me holding me behind the couch the night my parents died.

THat song has always just been so BIG to me. I know this happens to people all the time. It is a test of faith and I really belive. Thanks for posting that poem. It is amazing!!
