A tiny little angel

bid a silent sweet goodbye

to a sad  and weeping mother,

then flew off to heaven’s sky.


When a spirit child is perfect

there’s no need for them to stay.

They come and choose a family

then go quickly on their way.


The trials and pain of earth life

are not theirs to endure.

God knows these precious little ones

are much too good and pure.


But while here, a bond is made.

Closer than any other.

One of true and lasting love

between the child and  mother.


I am the mother of an angel.

who is watching over me.

How I wish you could have stayed,

but it’s not meant to be.


For a time, my little angel,

you and I will be apart,

but until I hold you in my arms,

you’re in your mother’s heart.
