An Angel in the Book of Life

"An angel in the book of life wrote down my baby's birth.
Then whispered as she closed the book "too beautiful for earth".


Those we have Held

Those we have held in our arms for a little while,
We hold in our hearts forever.


Some People

Some people only dream of Angels...
We held one in our arms.


Then the Child

Then the child opened its eyes, and looked up into the angel's beautiful face,
Which beamed with happiness, and at the same moment they were in heaven,
Where joy and bliss reigned.
The child received wings like the other angel,
And they flew about together, hand in hand.

Hans Christian Anderson


The Day God Took You Home

The Day God Took You Home,
In tears we saw you sinking,
And watched you pass away.
Our hearts were almost broken,
We wanted you to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping,
So peaceful, free from pain,
How could we wish you back with us,
To suffer that again. It broke our hearts to,
Lose you, But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.


Little Angels (2)

(Change the name, age and gender for your own situation)

God sent an angel to the earth,
The sweetest angel too,
And for such a tiny little thing,
She had so much to do.
She knew she did not have,
Much time upon this earth to stay,
So she did not waste a second;
She got started right away.


Her eyes were bright and sparkly,
She took in every turn.
She did not miss a single thing,
Because Angel came to learn!
God sent her here to touch the,
Hearts of those he could not reach,
She taught them courage, strength and faith,
Because Angel came to teach.

Her tiny little body,
Was so full of God above,
You felt it when you held her,
Because Alice came to love.

In eleven short months she managed,
What many never will.
When she went home to Jesus,
Her purpose was fulfilled.
She learned and taught, loved and played,
She learned her lessons well.
I know he was so proud of her,
When she went home to dwell.

But when I miss her OH-SO-MUCH,
I can almost hear him say,
Please understand, her work was done,
Alice did not come to stay.


God Took Him To His Loving Home

God saw him getting tired, a cure was not to be.
He wrapped him in His loving arms and whispered "Come to Me.",
He suffered much in silence, his spirit did not bend,
He faced his pain with courage, until the very end.
He tried so hard to stay with us but his fight was not in vain,
God took him to His loving home and freed him of his pain.


Too Pure to Stay

At the loss of a dear sweet child,
Words cannot explain,
How much the heart is broken,
Or how awful is the pain.

"Why doest Thou take little ones?"
I asked as I knelt to pray.
I felt his spirit telling me;
"They are too pure to stay."

I had the warmest feeling,
That my child is happy and waits,
Until we are together again,
Past Heaven's golden gates.

Time will reunite us,
In not too many years.
In heavens place, we will embrace,
And joy will replace the tears.


Golden Memories

They say memories are golden, well, maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.
A million times I cried. If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died. In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place no one else could fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane.
I'd walk the path to Heaven and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same. But as God,
Calls us back one by one, the chain will link again.


Precious Son

God, I know you gave your precious Son,
To give us life with You.
But we didn't want our son to leave,
Cause he was precious too.
We all are special in your eyes,
And all to you return.
We know our son will not come back,
And for this our hearts still yearn.
Our time on earth is for learning,
And when our lessons are through,
Our Lord will choose the time we leave,
And we come back to you.
Our precious son is with you,
And there will be a day,
That we too will leave this earth,
And you will light our way.
His arms will be wide open,
And the wait will be worthwhile,
When we see again our precious son,
And the splendor of his smile.

Heaven's Special Child

A meeting was held quite far from earth.
"It's time again for another birth,'
Said the Angels to the Lord above,
"This special child will need much love.
His progress may seem very slow,
And he'll require extra care,
From the folks he meets way down there.
He may not run or laugh or play,
His thoughts may seem quite far away,
In many ways he won't adapt,
And he'll be known as handicapped.
So let's be careful where he's sent,
We want his life to be content.
Please, Lord, find the parents who,
Will do a special job for you.
They will not realize right away,
The leading role they're asked to play,
But with this child sent from above,
Comes stronger faith and richer love.
And soon they'll know the privilege given,
In caring for this gift from Heaven,
Their precious charge, so meek and mild,
Is Heaven's very special child!".


So Very Special

She was so very, very special,
And was so from the start,
You held her in your arms,
But mainly in your heart,
And like a single drop of rain,
That on still waters fall,
Her life did ripples make,
And touched the lives of all.
She's gone to play with angels,
In heaven up above.
So keep your special memories,
And treasure. them with love,
Although your darling daughter,
Was with you just a while,
She'll live on in your heart,
With a sweet remembered smile.


My Little Angel

You've just walked on ahead of me,
And I've got to understand,
You must release the ones you love,
And let go of their hand.
I try and cope the best I can,
But I'm missing you so much,
If I could only see you,
And once more feel your touch.
Yes, you've just walked on ahead of me,
Don't worry I'll be fine,
But now and then I swear I feel,
Your hand slip into mine.
God Took Him To His Loving Home,
God saw him getting tired, a cure was not to be.
He wrapped him in his loving arms and whispered "Come with me.",
He suffered much in silence, his spirit did not bend.
He faced his pain with courage, until the very end.
He tried so hard to stay with us but his fight was not in vain,
God took him to His loving home and freed him from the pain.


A Parents Prayer

When a child is apart,
Even for a little while,
A parent says a prayer.
We ask the Lord to protect,
To be where we cannot be,
To go where we cannot go.
In Him we place our trust,
For He sees, He knows.
Though how your heart must break,
Parted for now from your little one,
Know that the Lord keeps your little one safe,
With Him, where we all belong.
He will keep your child in a loving embrace,
Just as He keeps you, a child, too.
That is His answer to a parent's prayer,
That is His love,
Forever, everywhere.


Little Angels

When God calls little children to dwell with Him above,
We mortals sometime question the wisdom of His love.
For no heartache compares with the death of one small child
Who does so much to make our world, seem wonderful and mild,
Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to his fold,
So He picks a rosebud, before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them, and so He takes but few,
To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try,
The saddest word mankind knows will always be "Goodbye."
So when a little child departs, we who are left behind,
Must realize God loves children, Angels are hard to find.


A Little Angel

Today it would be wonderful,
To see you play and smile,
But heaven lent you to this world,
For just a little while,
And in that short but precious time,
You brought along much love,
And all that love is with you now,
In heaven up above.
Your leaving caused so many tears,
And such a lot of pain,
But God needed one more angel,
So he took you back again.
