God Sent Us An Angel

God Sent Us An Angel
God sent us an angel, but he didnʼt give her wings
I never saw a harp, and I rarely heard her sing
He tucked away the halo, so we wouldnʼt recognize
But I think I saw it shining, in the light deep in her eyes
God sent us an angel, to live an earthly life
To walk the path before her, in happiness and strife
It wasnʼt his intention that we should ever know
Her purpose was to touch us, and to help our souls to grow
God sent us an angel, with a nature pure and true
She showed unselfish love to everyone she knew
A kind and gentle spirit, her words would never taunt
Such beauty in simplicity, in a life she didn't flaunt
God sent us an angel, with the strength of many men
It wasnʼt in her muscles, but from what she held within
The burdens that she carried, could never break her stride
As she lived the life God gave her, with dignity and pride
God sent us an angel, with a lovely face and mind
Yet it wasnʼt physical assets that he hoped that we would find
I know that she has blessed us with love to make us whole
And the splendor of her essence will live forever in our souls
God sent us an angel; her faith was firm and strong
Through pain and physical torment, she knew where she belonged
Sheʼd close her eyes in silence, and bow her head to pray
To thank God for his blessings and the life he gave each day
God sent us an angel who would never cast a stone
Or speak words to break the heart of anyone sheʼs known
She didnʼt make an enemy, in the present or her past
For she only knew of goodness, and made memories that last
God send us an angel who wore a smile upon her face
Iʼve tucked it in my heart, where it will never be erased
She will linger in my memories, until we meet again
Waiting there in heaven, to greet her family and friends
God sent us an angel so many lives she touched
We all should count our blessings for sheʼs given us so much
The void in our hearts and the sorrow that we feel
Will not hurt us forever, but it will take some time to heal
God sent us an angel but she couldn't stay for long
For he needed her in heaven and he had to call her home
But we were surely blessed, and each of us was loved
By the angel who has left us, but still watches from above
God sent us an angel, her heart devoid of wrath
Now hand in hand with Jesus, she walks a golden path
Sheʼs going to meet her savior; the time is now at hand
For eternal peace awaits her, there in the Promised Land
