I'm an Angel Now

I put this poem on Facebook today and thought I should probably share it here too. It is just beautiful.

One night I cried to Jesus as I sat beneath a tree
I looked into the open sky and hoped he would answer me..
I'm lost dear Lord, I've traveled far, but still I seem to roam
Please light the way and lead me Lord, I need to get back home...

I told him of my burdens, and of the sadness in my heart
That from His gracious love, I'd never felt so far apart....
Why did you take my child Lord? I cannot understand!
No longer can I touch her face, or hold her tiny hand...

I'm angry Lord, I'm missing her, I'm drowning in my sorrow
Please help to heal my yesterday and face each new tomorrow...
It was then I heard her gentle voice and felt her presence near
How I wanted so to hold her as I cried another tear...

She said, "Mommy, I am an angel now, my spirit is free
I'm an angel now in Heaven, so please don't cry for me
I was chosen by our Lord above and now I'm in His care
When you need me, look inside your heart, I promise to be there

No one can ever take away our bond
For I'll always be your precious baby, as you will be my mother
So if you cannot find your way, or the road to home seems far
Just look up to the Heavens...and I'll be your guiding star

She said, "Mommy, I'm an angel now, my spirit is free
I'm an angel now in Heaven, no need to cry for me..."
