“Fallen Angel”

About “Fallen Angel”:  To RememberMoonlight Angel

Posted on July 22, 2013 by

 

I posted this poem about “Fallen Angel”, because it was written for a grieving Mother who had recently lost her  year old son.  He was on a two lane road at night, not doing anything wrong, and another car was in his lane, causing a head on collision. I didn’t know the woman well, but knew the Sister.  What words can you say to comfort at a time such as this?  I wrote what I could not say.  They buried him and as this very large family stood over the grave, this poem I wrote was read.  I did not expect what I had to say to have such an impact, but it did.

We as parents, Brothers and Sisters and all family, don’t realize allot of time how precious each day is.  Things unsaid, wounds not healed.  Now we have our Sons and Daughters, Husbands and Wives, fighting for our country, that I for one, sometimes forget.

 

 

Fallen Angel

I remember most of all the little things

From the moment I held him dear

All these memories, love is what it brings

Knowing in this time of loss, he is near

God, watch over this fallen angel

Who is with You now

Lord knows how much he will be missed

But I’ll get through it somehow

Family comes to mourn from near and far

Asking why

Let him be that shining star

High in heaven’s sky

God, watch over this fallen angel

Who will always have a special place in my heart

Give me strength to bear each day

Remembering his smile that from me will never depart

Heaven’s gates are open wide

To take this precious soul

Now with You he will reside

Having Your love and grace to console

God, watch over this fallen angel

Keep him close by Your side

Showered with Your everlasting love

Welcome him with Your arms open wide

But Lord, please understand

My grief I cannot hide

The is my dedication to the ones we lost and a reminder to EMBRACE the ones we have.

God Bless you All, Barb

Dedicated to Veronica (A dear and Wonderful friend) even though she is miles away.
