    May I Be Your Angel Now???[br>[br>It feels like yesterday...
    But was so many years ago...
    The Dr looked at me so seriously...
    Fibromyalgia he diagnosed me with...
    [br>Deep inside... Heart and soul... I ran...
    Unable to deal with another illness...
    For 30 years it's been diagnosis after diagnosis...
    With no hope of cures or real help...
    [br>My spirit became darkened by despair...
    My heart broken and beaten...
    My soul walking a lonely path alone...
    Not wanting to live such a life anymore...
    [br>I found myself drifting... Loosing myself...
    Watching as my life changed from living to dying...
    I watched as what few dreams I had... were gone...
    My life wasting away in anger... depression... and confusion...
    [br>I came to this community and read...
    I read of trials I was living through...
    I seen others accepting one another and themselves...
    I watched as people lived with this "dragon"...
    [br>Yet I still didn't want to live this way...
    So one day I sat down at my keyboard...
    I remember the fear... The heart felt cries...
    "Help me"... I cried... "I just want to die"...
    [br>I cried... " I just can't go on"...
    And you turned my life around...
    I found understanding... compassion...
    I found my Angels filled with love...
    [br>When I reached out in despair...
    An Angel reached back with hope...
    When I fell a broken spirit...
    An Angel pieced me back together...
    [br>I walked no longer alone...
    My spirit soared back into life...
    My soul filled with strength so needed...
    My Angels saved my life...
    [br>Oh my Dearest of all Angels...
    How do I repay you...
    Words alone can't thank you...
    How do I pay you for my life you saved...
    [br>May I Be Your Angel Now???
    [br>May I give back to you...
    The sunshine in my heart...
    The strength in my soul...
    The peace in my spirit...
    [br>May I Be Your Angel Now???
    [br>May I return the gift you gave to me...
    May I give to you my life...
    [br>May I Be Your Angel Now???
