Angel in Heaven

One night as I sat beneath a tree
I cried to our dear Lord above
I looked up into the open sky and hoped he'd answer me
Lord I'm lost, I've traveled far but I still seem to roam
Please light the way and lead me back home

I told Him of my burdens
And of the everlasting sadness in my heart
That from his lost love I never felt so apart
Why did you take my grandad, Lord?
I just can not comprehend why
No longer can I touch his face or hold his hand
His loving smile has gone

I'm angry, Lord
I'm missing him like mad
I drowning in my greif and sorrow
Please help me heal my sad

It was then I heard his gentle voice
And felt his presence near
How I longed for him to stay
As I cried another tear

He said, 'I'm an angel now
My spirit is free
I am an angel in heaven
So please don't cry for me
I was chosen by our Lord above and now I am in his care
When you need me look inside your heart
I promise I'll be there
I am an angel in heaven now
So if you can not find your way
or the road home just seems to far
Look to the sky, I'll be your guiding star'
He said, 'I'm an angel now
My spirit is free
I'ma n angel in heaven now
No need to cry for me.'

    he read this every day
    and he says what I say
    precious child of mine
    no need to moan an whine
    for pain is absent of me
    and my old eyes do see
    Walk i can, even run
    I'm in the light of the son
    so take a break and smile
    it's this i do wish my child
    i look o'er you each day
    I'm the footstep along the way. (Report) Reply

    this is awsome, sad and touching poem. Sorry for your loss.
    It's not easy to lose our loved ones. Though i never got the chance to hold my grandfather, even he's chosen to be an angel but a li'l too soon. (Report) Reply
