Our Missing Angel

We thought we saw your face today, in the sparkle of the morning sun. And then we heard the angel say, "Ms. Riggs your work is done."

We thought we heard your voice today, then laugh your hearty laugh.
And then we heard the angel say, "There's peace Ms. Riggs at last."

We thought we felt your touch today, in the breeze that rustled by.
And then we heard the angel say, " Ms. Riggs spirit will never die."

We thought we saw our broken hearts, in the crescent of the moon.
And then we heard the angel say, "The Lord is coming soon."

We thought Ms. Riggs that you had left us, for the stars so far above.
And then we heard the angel say, "She left you with her love."

We thought that we would miss you so, and never find our way.
And then we heard the angel say, "She's with you every day."

"The sun, the wind, the moon, the stars, will forever be around, reminding US of the love you shared, and the peace you've finally found."
