Guardian Angel

A Guardian Angel
hangs above my bed
and the cross sits
in my front pocket.
The plane takes off 
the runway.
I feel safe.
But two minutes later,
it jolts to the left.
Engines fall silent
and a panic fills 
the seats.
He grabs my leg,
so I hold his hand
until engines
start again.
And I wonder
if we were praying
to the same God.
