The Little Girl in the Pink Dress

There was this little girl in the park.
Everyone passed by her and never stopped to see
why she looked so sad.
Dressed in a worn pink dress, barefoot and dirty,
the little girl just sat and watched the people go
by.
She never tried to speak.
She never said a word.
Many people passed by her, but no one would stop.
The next day, I decided to go back to the park,
in curiosity to see if the little girl would still be
there.
Yes, she was there, right in the very spot where she
was yesterday,
and still with the same sad look in her eyes.
Today I was to make my own move and walk 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 got closer,
I could see the back of the little girl's dress was
gortesquely shaped.
I figured that was the reason people just passed by
and made no effort to speak to her.
Deformities are a low blow to our society and,
heaven forbid if you make a step toward assisting
someone who is different.
As I got closer,
the little girl lowered her eyes slightly to avoid
my intent stare.
As I approached her,
I could see the shape of her back more clearly.
She was grotesquely shaped in a humped-over form.
I smiled to let her know it was OK; I was there to
help, and to talk.
I sat down beside her and opened with a simple, "
Hello".
The little girl acted shocked, and stammered a "Hi,"
after a long stare into my eyes.
I smiled and she shyly smiled back.
We talked until darkness fell and the park was
completely empty.
I asked the girl why she was so sad?
The little girl looked at me with a sad face said,
"Because I'm different ."
I immediately said, "That you are!" and smiled.
The little girl acted even sadder and I said, "I
know."
"Little girl," I said, " you remind me of an Angel,
sweet and innocent."
She looked at me and smiled, then slowly got to
her feet and said, "Really?"
"Yes, you're like a little Guardian Angel
sent to watch over all those people walking by."
She nodded her head yes, and smiled.
With that she opened the back of her pink dress
and allowed her wings to spread,
then she said,"I am.
I'm your Guardian Angel, with a twinkle in her eye.
I was speechless-sure I was seeing things.
She said , "For once you thought of someone other
than yourself.
My job here is done."
I got to my feet and said, "Wait, why did no one
stop to help an Angel.?"
She looked at me, smiled, and said,
"You're the only one that could see me," and then
she was gone.
And with that, my life was changed dramatically.
So, when you think you're all you have, remember,
your Angel is watching over you.
