Beloved Burden

          Her guardian angel loved her,
          Maybe even more than I;
          He knew that he'd be going Home
          When told the day she'd die.

          He'd been there since her time of birth,
          Watched o'er her day and night;
          His brilliant wings would shelter her,
          He kept her in his sight.

          He knew her hopes,
          He knew her fears;
          He loved her laugh,
          He felt her tears.

          He wrote down every word she spoke,
          And heard her every prayer;
          He followed every step she took,
          Went with her everywhere.

          The pain she felt before her death
          Broke his strong heart in two;
          It grieved him when he saw her thus
          And nothing he could do.

          But when she breathed her final breath
          She saw his face so dear;
          She knew he'd been there all her life
          And now there was no fear.

          For in his hand she'd slip her own,
          And with him she would fly;
          His massive wings would safely speed
          To her new Home on high.

          With *Jesus* there to welcome
          This beloved burden... then...
          The angel placed her in *His* care
          Forevermore, Amen.

"For He shall give His angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways."  (Psalm 91:11, KJV)
