I've heard it said so many times,

"Now she's an angel in Heaven."

But that is not the plan of things

That in God's Word is given.

No matter what we're told or think,

The two will never merge.

Angels are angels and men are men,

E'en after the funeral dirge.

Angels are not sweet hovering souls

Who're just like us--with wings.

Angels are warriors, messengers, yes!

Strong and powerful beings!

I wouldn't want some sissified angel,

Like the pics I see each day,

To be the help God sent to me

As answer when I pray.

Next time you hear somebody say,

The deceased is an angel now.

You don't have to say it, remember,

As head you sadly bow.

We all have grief and trouble enough

To keep us busy each day.

But angels we're not, and will never be,

When Heaven we go to stay.
