When I see the gentle rain,
fall over the land I live and breathe,
I'll know its not tears of sadness, you shed,
but hope eternal and love, you are sharing with me.

When I see the stars shinning overhead,
I'll reminisce that gleam in your eyes,
that you do watch and guide with your love,
that only your gentle heart could  provide.

When I feel the sun warming my face,
I'll think of all the brightened days.
The days you gave so much happiness to all.
Those loving memories of an angel,  I'll recall.

When I hear the thunder crashing,
I'll remember the laughter and all the smiles,
of one small boy who was,
such an angel on earth,
now running and laughing down heaven's aisles.

For I know heaven must have seen your heart,
so pure, so full of life and joy.
That's why you left all you loved,
to prepare a welcomed home in heaven,
when its our turn, to finally arrive.

Perhaps heaven must have needed another angel,
to guide, protect and love from above.
So fly away my angel to await our turn,
when we will meet again, my love!
