You’re A Real Angel
If an angel is someone who’s so filled with love,
It’s a gift that constantly share,
If an angel is someone who looks out for others
And gives them a nudge here or there,
If an angel is someone who touches your life
With a heart that’s both joyful and wise
Then even though you don’t have a halo or wings
You’re an angel in human disguise.
You will always be in our thoughts
And hearts
Love your family and friends.
