Our Angel - Poem by Wendy Cox

The world lost an Angel
She walked beside you
And you never knew
She lived next to you
And you never knew

But when she touched your life
It was unmistakable
The love, the warmth, the caring,
And the endless giving which overflowed
From her heart and soul
Could only come from that of an Angel

Our Angel was a Mother and a Grandmother
Our Angel was a Sister and a Wife
Our Angel was a Friend and a Mentor

Our hearts ache with sadness and emptiness
For, Our Angel has moved on to a new world
A world where Souls fly free
A world without pain
A world where Our Angel has Wings

We mourn for OUR loss, but let us not forget
Life is to be celebrated
And the remembrance cherished

If, our Angel could speak to us know, she would tell you…
“Please don’t cry, celebrate my life, enjoy being together on this day.
Remember my smile, my good deeds, my love for my
Family and friends, and keep me alive in your heart.”

Our Angel is Patricia Ann Cox and
Heaven is now a better place
