In the Arms of an Angel
Mantled from birth in angel´s arms,
Protected in life & shown its charms,
Promised succor, help always near,
Just a prayer away, they´d always hear.
The end was nigh, yet she felt no fear,
All she felt, was that someone was near,
Enfolding her tight in love´s strong arms,
Promising her that she´d come to no harm.
The long journey she must now undertake,
Leaving loved ones weeping at her sad wake,
She´ll tell them, “Never fear, I´m going home,
I am in the arms of angels, so I am not alone”.
She´s lifted softly from this life´s hardened bed,
Wings surrounding & a cool hand upon her head,
Whispered words of solace from gossamer breath,
Protectors of all mortals, on the journey to death.
Do Not Weep My Little One
