Your face lit up, you said I have the face of an angel
"There’s fire shooting from within your eyes"
I was surprised to be shown we would fall in love
Timidly I told you, but you chuckled in surprise
I was shown your broken heart, your undeserved hurt
I was shown that you’d suffered so much undue pain
I warmed to your spirit and your precious, tender soul
I knew I was sent to help you love and trust again
The Lord Himself asked me to take your hand in mine
He said "There’s a lightless bridge he fears to cross
Take his hand in your own and help him on his walk
His gentle heart knows only fear of love and loss"
"Guide him to the place I have planned in advance
Show him unconditional love and give your heart
Until he is safely standing on the other side
Become one with this man in whole, not in part"
Happily we walked and loved, to the end of your bridge
I smiled proudly but He said "Let go of his hand"
I wasn’t shown what would happen next in our lives
I was afraid; He said "One day, you’ll understand"
I’ve thought of that vision through our precious years
At the end of it, I saw nothing more than black
I knew you were safe and had learned to love again
I was scared as there was no going back
Afraid now I stand at the end of our bridge
God’s loves you and will give your "happy ever after"
Three years I’ve prayed for your soul to love again
For your heart’s eternal fill of love and laughter
Love-on my beloved, my heart’s warmth in your hand
I’m blessed to have walked you to this place
I ask one gift, please give your soul back to God
That I see His peace in your life and on your face
That I may hear that I have served God and you well
That He say to me "Well done, good and faithful maid"
That I could know I’ve been and angel to you
As you’ve blessed me more than I’d hoped or prayed
Three years you have given an eternity of love
You’ve treasured and loved the diamond in my heart
You’ve loved selflessly and given more than I ask
It has been me who’s been blessed from our start
You have given a precious gift far beyond my dreams
You’ve shown me that our love will never end
I will hold you in my heart, until the end of time
I know you hold me closer than I’ll ever understand
You called me your angel when you looked on my face
You saw my broken heart and spirit that first day
But my love, it was you who’s been the angel to me
I’m humbled by your loving more than I can say
My beloved Gerlando, go in joy and peace I pray
Discover your beloved and make this gift your own
I’m eternally blessed with the unending love you give
You’ve sacrificed and it’s truest love you’ve shown
One more thing I ask before I end our sonnet
Will you remember me the day that you pass on?
Will you run to my arms when we meet again in Heaven?
Will you kiss my head each night from that moment on?
Go my sweet angel
Take your wings and fly
I love you forever
I love you forever
