One night I cried to Jesus,
as I sat beneath a tree
I looked into the open sky
and hoped He would answer me.

Please light the way and lead me,
Lord, I need to get back home.
I told him of my burdens
and the sadness in my heart,

I'd never felt so alone
or so far apart.
Why did you take my child, Lord?
I cannot understand.

No longer can I touch his face
or hold his precious hand.
I'm angry, Lord, I'm missing him,
I'm drowning in my sorrows.
Lord, please help me heal my yesterday
and face each new tomorrow.

It was then I heard his voice
and felt his presence near.
How I wanted to hold him
as I cried another tear.

He said, "Dad, I'm an angel now,
my spirit is free,
I'm an angel in Heaven,
so please don't cry for me.

I was chosen by our Lord above,
and now I'm in His care
When you need me, look inside your heart,
I promise to be there.

No one can ever take away
our bond with one another,
For I will always be your precious child,
as you will be my father.

So if you cannot find your way,
or the road to home seems far.
Just look up to the heavens,
I will be your twinkling star."

He said, "Dad, I'm an angel now,
my spirit is free,
I'm an angel in Heaven,
no need to cry for me."

I Love You, Dad!
