Angels

Angels Weren’t Meant to Stay on Earth

Angels weren’t meant to stay on earth.

I know you had to go because

your father wanted you home.

I don’t want to be selfish, but

I didn’t want you to leave me.

All I got left with is memories that

Sometimes come in waves of pain,

Knocking me down,

leaving me looking up at the clouds, and remembering.

Angels weren’t meant to stay on earth.

I close my eyes and think of you, wondering

How happy you must have been to get back home to the King.

Still, I am here wishing that I

could have loved you more,

could have said I am sorry more,

could have forgiven you more,

could have talked to you more,

could have laughed with you more,

could have begged GOD to let you stay some more.

But, I know you couldn’t stay because

Angels weren’t meant to stay on earth.

Angels weren’t meant to stay on earth, but

I thank you for the love you left me with, and

in my heart you will live.

I can smile in the warmth of your memories, and

when the pain comes,

I will let the memory of your love comfort me.

Say Hi to the Lord for me, my angel.
