I was adrift on waves of feelings
swirling circles about my mind
wondering if I had the strength
to decide it was your time.

Did I have the right to make this choice
that would change our lives forever,
did I have the will to sacrifice
our precious time together?

Was I wrong in thinking of myself
while you grew so frail and weak,
was I selfish in my desperate need
to have you here with me to keep?

Into your bright green eyes I searched
and found within your soul,
the echo of a far-seen wisdom
the kind which only angels know.

You gently rocked my broken heart
and with angelic calm
you lifted all the guilt I felt
for wanting to hold on.

You showed me that the choice with which
I felt so wrecked and torn
lay upon a path God paved
the day that you were born.

Somehow you made me understand
the choice was never mine,
it had been appointed long before,
in another place and time.

So as I lay you down to sleep
your eternal spirit shines
and our paths will cross again someday
littlest angel of mine.
