Special Angel in Heaven
There’s a special Angel in Heaven
That is a part of us.
It is not where we wanted her
But where God wanted her to be.
She was here but just a moment
Like a night time shooting star
And though she is in Heaven,
She isn’t very far.
She touched the hearts of many
Like only Angels can.
We would’ve held her every minute
If we’d only known God’s plan.
So we send this special message
To the Heavens up above.
Please take care of our Angel
And send her all our love.
