I had an angel here beside me,
Sent to earth to help and guide me,
an angel always there for me
because she loved and cared for me.

She did the things that angels should:
She taught me what was bad and good,
she gave me hope when no one cared,
she held my hand when I was scared.
She cheered me up when I was down
she could make a smile from a frown,
she doctored me when I was sick,
and many another angel trick.

Today my angel earned her wings,
her halo, harp and other things.
But today I'm lost and all alone,
for today god called my angel home.
