My Angel

Every night before I turn off her light,

we say our evening prayers.

We pray the Lord our souls to keep,

then she hugs her little bears.

I love her so very much,

the angel that God's given to me.  

I crave her smiles and her gentle touch,

no matter what, she'll always be my baby.

Every night whenever she closes her eyes,

I gently caress her beautiful face.

Wrapped snuggly in her blanket she lies,

Most sweetly, she's full of grace.

There's nothing more rewarding than this,

watching my angel sleeping so peacefully.

I can't help but give her one more kiss,

She'll never know how much she means to me.
