He soars high above her,

Keeping her safe and sound.

Watching out for her,

Giving her love,

And peace of mind.

He flies down low to hold her,

To take her hand in his,

To kiss her on the cheek,

And whisper in her ear,

She's special.

During the day,

He flies beside her,

But in the night,

Her angel leaves her.

He goes to fly among the stars,

And she's forced to stay,

On the ground,

Alone.

But as she goes to sleep,

After watching him fly away,

She can't help but pretend,

He's right there beside her.

She can't help but wonder,

What it might be like,

To sleep on angel wings.
