An angel came to me last night.
While I was sleeping in my bed
She gave a quiet sigh.
As she gently touched my head.
“Worry not no more”
She said to me, “things will be ok”
Close your eyes and go to sleep
For tomorrow’s another day.
I thought I might be dreaming
I couldn’t possibly be awake
Listening to an angel
Must be some mistake!
But as I opened my eyes, and I was fully aware
Surrounding this angel was a beautiful glare
Like snowflakes all glistening in the cool midday sun
As I sat watching quietly
The angel began
“your face is so pretty
Yet so sad aswell
You have words to say
But no one to tell
The light in your eyes has faded to grey
You love being here, but feel in the way.
You’re a wonderful mother
Lover and wife
You just can’t put up with trouble and strife!
You need to slow down, stop where you are
You won’t give up now
After coming this far
You need to feel loved,
Nobody realizes one thing I’m sure
Just what joy you put in their lives
They couldn’t ask for no more“.
My eyes where still watery being half asleep
This angel she promised her word she would keep.
Still dazed and confused from what I had seen
I really still thought I was having a dream
All of a sudden an amazing bright light
Appeared so brightly from out of the night
“I must go back now”, the angel did sigh
To look down upon you
From a special place in the sky.
She took a deep breath and started to sing
Raised up her head and opened her wings
Just one last glance as she turned round to me
“your guide and protection,
This I will always be
I will always surround you
But you will never see.
