Angels in Heaven
~ By Tammy L. Tobac 1993 (TCF)
We have angels in heaven
Who look down on us here
while the world all around us says
"Be of good cheer!"
Everyone else is bustling about
We simply watch it go by, yet we just want to shout~
Don't you know it's not merry at this time of year,
when our lives feel so empty and our eyes fill with tears.
We can't bear the thought of another holiday
without our precious loved one who was taken away.
But your child's spirit does live on,
though their physical being may be gone.
Look around and you will see
their soul lives on in your memory.
You'll see your child's eyes so bright
In every twinkling Christmas light.
There are angels in heaven, Who look down on us here
And they are trying to tell us, Don't worry we're near!
We love you and miss you, we'll never be far...
Just look to the sky and the bright Christmas star.
Take a special moment throughout these blessed days
to remember me in the kindest of ways...
Give my smile to a person, who needs it like you,
and my spirit will live on through the things that you do.
