I WANT TO BE AN ANGEL!


People often asked me,

Just what I want to be.

And I always say to them,

That comes easily!


I want to be an ANGEL,

When I grow up some day.

I want to go to Heaven,

So all I do is pray.


I want to be an ANGEL,

But little Zackie got there first.

So he'll save a place in Heaven,

And I'll keep my place on earth.


He said his mother needs me,

Right there by her side.

He asked that I please stay behind,

Since he's the one who died.


I had no choice but to agree,

I promised that I would.

I'd help his mother thru this all,

As best I thought I could.


But I want to be an ANGEL,

I thought it should be ME.

He was only seventeen,

Now he holds Heaven's key!
