Upon this Earth my angel,
Had once walked with me.
My angel now is forever gone,
On this Earth never again to be.
Silently my heart did sob,
Not wanting for anyone to see me cry.
You left on your final journey,
Leaving me behind and never saying goodbye.
It's hard for me to truly believe,
That it was God's will.
How did this come to be?
There are many unanswered questions still.
I guess He needed you more then I,
But how could that really be.
He has many angels of His own,
Why couldn't He leave my angel here with me?
Was I being selfish?
By wanting to keep you here.
Was it unfair of me?
To want you always near.
Tell me why did He need my angel?
Why did it have to be you?
You had so much life to live,
And so many things left to do.
Didn't He know that I needed you?
And that I loved you so.
Didn't He know it broke my heart?
When I had to let you go.
I think about you all the time,
And I wish you were still here.
All that is left of you,
Are the memories I hold so dear.
I loved you then,
And I love you still.
Someday in Heaven,
Walk together again we will.
So when God needs another angel,
Tell him He can take me too.
Then once again my angel,
I'll Be With You.
