She is our angel watching over us from up above.

A Mother's Love
is no love, like a mother's love,
no stronger bond on earth...
like the precious bond that comes from God,
to a mother, when she gives birth.
A mother's love is forever strong,
never changing for all time...
and when her children need her most,
a mother's love will shine.
God bless these special mothers,
God bless them every one...
for all the tears and heartache,
and for the special work they've done.
When her days on earth are over,
a mother's love lives on...
through many generations,
with God's blessings on each one.
Be thankful for our mothers,
for they love with a higher love...
from the power God has given,
and the strength from up above.
A Child's Angel
Once upon a time there was a child ready to be born. So one day he
They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow but how am I going to
live there being so small and helpless?
Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She will be waiting for
You and will take care of you.
But tell me, here in Heaven, I don't do anything else but sing and
smile, that's enough for me to be happy.
Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day. And
you will feel your angel's love and be happy.
And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me, if
I don't know the language that men talk?
Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will
ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you
how to speak.
And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?
Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to
I've heard that on earth there are bad men. Who will protect me?
Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life.
But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.
Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way
for you to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you.
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from earth
could already be heard, and the child in a hurry asked softly:
Oh God, if I am about to leave now, please tell me my angel's name
Your angel's name is of no importance, you will call your angel:
I'm Spending Christmas With Jesus Christ This Year!
I see the countless Christmas trees
Around the world below
With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars
reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular
Please wipe away a tear
For I 'm spending Christmas
With Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs
That people hold so dear
But the sounds of music can't compare
With the Christmas choir up here.
For I have no words to tell you
The joy their voices bring
For it is beyond description
To hear an angel sing.
I know how much you miss me
For I feel your breaking heart...
But through our memories so dear
We're never far apart.
I can't tell you of the Splendor
Or the peace here in this place.
Can you just imagine Christmas
With our Savior face to face?
I'll ask him to light your spirit
As I tell him of your love.
So then pray for one another
As you lift your eyes above.
So please let your hearts be joyful
And let your spirit sing.
For I'm spending Christmas in Heaven
And I'm walking with the King.
In your bed at night
I watch you sleep in peace
And think how you
Have changed my life
For all eternity
You've given to me
As much as I have tried
Tirelessly to impart to you
A never ending spring
Of love, hope, patience and fun
Shared by two
You've come to me
In the fall of my years
Yet transported me to springtime
With your tiny fears
Making me remember
How simple life can be
To a winged little angel of three
Suddenly I am the focus
Of your needs and desires
Making me stand taller
To the task and never tire
So sleep my little angel,
I'm here for you always
You have given me the gift of
Springtime and sunny path ways
"When I Must Leave You"
When I must leave you for a little while
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears
And hug your sorrow to you through the years
But start out bravely with a gallant smile:
And for my sake and in my name live on
And do all the things the same
Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful ways,
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer,
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near:
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky!
God's Little Girl
Please don't be so sad,
I miss you so much too.
It's beautiful here where I am
But I worry a lot about you.
I sleep with the angels watching over me
There's only love up here...
I'm never lonely or afraid,
'Cause God's so very near.
I walk with Jesus every day
He's very kind and sweet.
Don't worry Mommy: He holds my hand
When we cross a golden street.
I never cry or hurt myself
I see my Great Grandma everyday.....
I play and laugh and sing a lot
And I hear you when you pray.
Please Mommy, don't be mad at God
You see, he loves me too.
And even though you're not here with me,
I'm really still with you.
I'm an Angel Now
One night I cried to Jesus as I sat beneath the trees.
I looked into the open sky and hoped He'd answer me.
I'm lost dear Lord. I've traveled far but still I seam 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's and face each new tomorrow.
It was then I heard her gentle voice and I felt her presence near.
How I wanted so to hold her as I cried another tear.
She said, "Mommy, "I 'm an angel now, my spirit will be 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 with one another
For I'll always be your precious child, as you will be my mother.
So if you cannot find your way or the road to home seems so far,
Just look up into the Heavens and I'll be you guiding star."
She said, "Mommy, I'm an angel now, my spirit will be free.
I'm an angel now in Heaven, no need to cry for me."
Gentle Savior, please look down...
There's someone at Your side.
A small bewildered little girl
Who needs you as her guide.
You know her name is Haley
If her smile could melt a heart of stone.
She's without her mom, dad and sister, too
So please lead her safely home.
Keep her in Your tender care
And Your strong and warm embrace.
Please guide her to her heavenly home
With a smile upon her face.
You put a dimple on her chin
And gave her hair so heavenly blonde.
Dear Lord, look after our little girl;
Guide her safely through each night.
Thank You, God, for the time we had
And all the memories we made
We'll keep Haley forever in our hearts
And remember the love she gave.
The Broken Chain
We little knew that morning that God
Was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone;
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
Your love is still our guide;
And though we can not see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same;
But as God calls us one by one,
THE CHAIN will link again.
Let Me Go
We've known lots of pleasure,
At times endured pain,
We've lived in the sunshine
And walked in the rain.
But now we're separated
And for a time apart,
But I am not alone-
You're forever in my heart.
Death always seems so sudden,
And it is always sure,
But what is often forgotten -
It is not without a cure.
I'm walking now with someone ,
And I know He'll always stay,
I know He's walking with you too,
Giving comfort everyday.
There may be times you miss me,
I sort of hope you do,
But smile when you think of me,
For I'll be waiting for you.
Now there's are many things for you to do,
And lots of ways to grow,
So get busy, be happy, and live your life,
Miss me, but let me go.
If Roses Grow in Heaven
If roses grow in Heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my daughter's arms
And tell her they are from me.
Tell her I love her and I miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek.
And hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day.
But there's an ache in my heart
That will never go away.
To My Dearest Family
Some things I'd like to say
But first of all to let you know
That I arrived okay
I'm writing this from Heaven
Where I dwell with God above
Where there's no more tears
Or sadness there
Is just eternal love
Please do not be unhappy
Just because I'm out of site
Remember that I'm with you
Every morning, noon and night
That day I had to leave
When my life on Earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me
And He said I welcome you
It's good to have you back again
You were missed while you were gone
As for your dearest family
They'll be here later on
I need you here so badly
As part of My big plan
There's so much that we have to do
To help our mortal man
Then God gave me a list of things
He wished for me to do
And foremost on that list of mine
Is to watch and care for you
And I will be beside you
Every day and week and year
And when you're sad
I'm standing there
To wipe away the tear
And when you lie in bed at night
The days chores put to flight
God and I are closest to you
In the middle of the night
When you think of my life on earth
And all those loving years
Because you're only human
They are bound to bring you tears
But do not be afraid to cry
It does relieve the pain
Remember there would be no flowers
Unless there was some rain
I wish that I could tell you
Of all that God has planned
But if I were to tell you
You wouldn't understand
But one thing for certain
Though my life on Earth is o're
I am closer to you now
Than I ever was before
And to my very many friends
Trust God knows what is best
I'm still not far away from you
I'm just beyond the crest
There are rocky roads ahead of you
And many hills to climb
But together we can do it
Taking one day at a time
It was always my philosophy
And I'd like it to be for you too
That as you give unto the World
So the world will give to you
If you can help somebody
Who is in sorrow or in pain
Then you can say to God at night
My day was not in vain
And now I am contented
That my life it was worthwhile
Knowing as I passed along the way
I made somebody smile today
So if you meet somebody
Who is down and feeling low
Just lend a hand to pick him up
As on your way you go
When you are walking
Down the street
And you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind
And when you feel the gentle breeze
Or the wind upon your face
That's me giving you a great big hug
Or just a soft embrace
And when it's time for you to go
From that body to be free
Remember you're not going
You are coming here to me
And I will always love you
From that land way up above
We'll be in touch again soon.
P.S. God sends His Love
You've Gone Ahead
My child I always thought that I,
Would show you the way,
Teach you your colors, about life,
How to pray.
I would lead you along, hold your hand.
Expound the mysteries of life and death.
But now, You leave me behind.
Your hand no longer nestles mine.
No need for em to light your way.
You've gone ahead.
Who will wipe your nose now?
I know no need for that where you are.
Do you need a mother now?
I need to be your mother,
Although you've gone ahead.
