An Angel

We were waiting for you,
We already love you.
The joy you brought us,
We hoped you'd love us.

We couldn't wait to see you,
We couldn't wait to hug you,
We couldn't wait to kiss you,
We couldn't wait to love you.

I don't even know you,
I did not have time to know you,
Too short, our time was too short,
Too short, your time was too short.

It should had been beautiful, to know you,
It should had been wonderful, to know you,
Instead, of these tears, you left us,
Instead of this pain, you left us.

It will be the first time I'll meet you.
Not, the way I wanted to meet you.
It will be the last time I'll meet you.
Not, the way I wanted to meet you.

You are a part of me, a family.
You are a part of us, a family.
You'll stay with me, a family.
You'll stay with us, a family.

An innocent soul,
Came like a single breath,
We had you, only for a moment,
A blink of an eye, you were lost to us.

An innocent soul.
Gone like a single breath,
We had you, only for a moment,
A blink of an eye, you were lost to us.

I want to believe,
I have an angel,
I want to believe,
You are my angel.

I want to believe,
You are in a nice place,
I want to believe,
You are in a better place.
