I'm An Angel Now

One night I cried to Jesus,
As I sat beneath the tree.
I looked into the open sky,
And hoped He'd 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 his face,
Or hold his grown-up hand.

I'm angry Lord, I'm missing him.
I'm drowning in my sorrow.
Please help to heal my yesterday,
And face each new tomorrow.

It was then I heard his gentle voice,
And felt his presence near.
How I wanted so to hold him,
As I cried another tear.

He said, "Mom, 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 far,
Just look up to the Heavens,
and I'll be your guiding star.

He said, "Mom, I'm an angel now,
My spirit will be free.
I'm an angel now in Heaven,
no need to cry for me."
