The National Federation of the Blind
of Connecticut
By Joe Tolve

Note from the editor: Joe Tolve is a long-standing member of the Connecticut affiliate. Below he offers us a thoughtful poem and a creative splash to this issue of The Federationist.

We have one Angel standing watch
Above us as we sleep;
Another gathers up the hopes
And dreams we wish to keep.

One Angel is the tiny voice
That whispers in our ears,
With words of love and comfort
To conquer grief and fears.

Of course we have one Guardian,
One friendship keeper too;
Another just to help us mend
The thoughtless things we do.

We have a Guardian of Love
Who protects our destiny,
And helps us with our soul mate
Who with we were meant to be.

We have a host of Angels
That keep us company,
In order that we become
The best that we can be.
