Angel in heaven,

I see your face in my dreams,

So pure and full of hope.

I held onto you briefly,

Knowing you couldn't stay,

As your death sentence had to be swift.

I held onto you, fed you,

Loved you but not enough.

Angel in heaven,

It was never your fault.

They were never good reasons-

That your father refused you,

That your mother would be shamed,

That you were never in their plans.

Angel in heaven,

I hope you will forgive me.

All my days are touched with sadness

because I loved you not enough.

When we meet in heaven, my angel,

I will never stop holding you again.
