My guardian angel..

Weird title eh ? atleast for an atheist..
Religious people talk about their guardian angel like a divine power that saves them from harm..

The reason why I write this is because of this video someone sent me

When I was in my teens I was the same as that bullied kid, I was a sensitive poetic kid , made music wrote love songs , that was me in that time

But to bullies I was an atheist,  fat and slow and that is everything they need to make me their target, and it went on way after my school time , but no one ever laid a hand on me, it stayed with verbal abuse ..
I sometimes wondered why they never physically attacked me  , never ambushed me to beat the shit out of me ..

Once I did get attacked and beat up by a wannabe outlaw motorcycle gang.., which ended for me in a 6 day coma a broken skull and all the nasty effects of this , but I recovered .. and what was the reason ?  I called one of them a coward for hitting his girlfriend.. Yeah not very smart after all, and Someone told me that as soon as I walked around they would repeat the favor...
But this NEVER happened , even more, the stayed out of my way like I had the plague, Well I did not mind I can tell you..
After 40 years I discovered why, except for this incident with the bikers, no one ever laid a hand on me..

It was because of my guardian angel ... his name was Pieter De Vries , six-foot-four built like Hulk Hogan and atleast equally strong..
I knew him from childhood and he protected me a few times that remember but was always a distant friend as I thought that time..
I had not seen him for almost 20 years when I discovered he lives really close to me on the other side of the highway and it was a great reunion .
We had long talks about the past and then I realized that it was he, who always looked out for me , and it was he who "told" (let's leave it at that) these bikers to stay way from me ..
Instead of a distant friend he was always close by ..
He might not be supernatural not have wings, but he always was my guardian angel..

Was ?  There is no need for that anymore, now he is one of my best friends...
