A Guardian Angel, flew down from above,
To teach me a lesson, about the power of love.

He whispered to me, then took hold of my hand,
There are so many things, you do not understand.

About the powers of love, and all it can do,
To someone who needs to share it with you.

A pat on the back, a kind smile on your face,
Can make someone's life, a much brighter place.

It doesn't take much, to show someone you care,
To give them the love, God gave you to share.

So please keep in mind, all the powers you possess,
To grace someone's life, when they're in distress.

You've been put on this earth to share the power of love,
And with those final words, he disappeared up above.

When somebody dies, a cloud turns into
an angel, and flies up to tell God
to put another flower on a pillow.
A bird gives the message back to
the world, and sings a silent prayer
that makes the rain cry.
People disappear, but they never
really go away. The spirits up there
put the sun to bed, wake up the grass,
and spin the earth in dizzy circles.
Sometimes you can see them dancing
in a cloud during the day time,
when they’re supposed to be sleeping.
They paint the rainbows and also
the sunsets and make waves splash
and tug at the tide.
They toss shooting stars and listen
to wishes. And when they sing
windsongs, they whisper to us,
don’t miss me too much.
The view is nice
and I’m doing just fine.

Guardian Angel
Guardian Angel from
heaven so bright,
watching beside me
to lead me aright,
fold thy wings round me,
and guard me with love,
softly sing songs to me
of heaven above.
