Treasure Island

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!

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
