I remember the last thing you said
to me before you passed that night;
You said, "Mommy did you see the angel?"
"No" I said in fright!
You said she was standing right by your
bed and smiling down at
"No! Please don't take him, his life's
not nearly through!
He has to play, grow up, do things, like have
children of his
Then I saw the angel that was sent from
God's holy throne.
My tears were flooding the vision of this lovely,
I heard her say she was sent
to take my child away that night,
To a place where there is no sickness
or pain, just happiness.
So I reached down and kissed your face
and gave you my last
As your eyes closed you had a smile upon your
And I held you close and kissed your hands
and tiny fingertips.
No more would we play games nor laugh
when we took a fall,
Because God has you in heaven, where you
stand proud and tall.
Someday I'll see you, and hold you close
to me once again.
