An Angel Came One Afternoon - Poem by Amy Louise Kerswell

An Angel came one afternoon.
A visit hedid pay.
That Angel took my grandad.
And tore my hart away.

So loving and loved.
He was.
I miss him so very much.
My best friend.

I truly loved my Grandad.
Honestly I did.
More than words can ever say.
Lord why did that Angel come.
And take him away?

The answers I will not know.
For it was Your chosen way.
I know my Grandad is in heaven.
Safe in your arms I pray.
