On Angel's Wings you were taken away,
But in my heart you will always stay.
I will hear your whisper in the tallest trees,
Feel your love in the gentle breeze.
And when I find I miss you the most,
Inside our beautiful memories
I will hold you close.
You are an Angel watching over me
with the comfort and blessings you bring,
You embrace my heart and hold it close,
Forever on Angel's Wings
