An Angel Gets Her Wings


A new angel got her wings today
Her mourning family can only pray
She knew for awhile, she would be leaving soon
She tried to cradle her babies real tight into a cocoon

She tried to live a life time in each moment she had
She knew when Angels came. her loved ones would be sad
When her affairs were in order, she got ready to leave

I love you all so much, for me please don't grieve

I've been made whole, I'm in good company
My new life in heaven, I'll be waiting for you to join me
Just know that I'll forever, be watching over you
With each breath you breathe, I'll be there anew

My family, please don't cry for me
All the pain is gone, and I've finally been set free!

Dedicated to Christal Hutchins Near

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
