Your time on earth was not enough
To satisfy a mother’s love
I want to hold you, keep you near
I want to bring you back to me my dear
Do you know I loved you before I met you?
You owned my heart before I held you in my arms
Do you know I would have traded places with you
Just to have you here one more day?
A father is supposed to always be strong
He protects and fends off all who cause us harm
Was I a good father to you?, I do implore
If I was, why are you now knocking on heaven’s door?
I wanted to protect you, I wanted to be strong
All I want right now is to hold you in my arms
I’m sobbing like a child now, my heart is broken too
I wanted to protect you, but now what can I do?
I’m much too young to understand
Why God took you by the hand
We could have grown up together,
You could have been my best friend
One day I will look back, ask mom and dad about you
I will always know a piece of my heart is missing
Because you took it to heaven with you
I know you will watch over me, I know angels are true
You are my sweet angel now, but don’t think I’m not missing you
