My Angel Dad!

My dad died when I was nineteen. His death almost destroyed me. However, as the years went by, I realized how blessed I was, and still am, because my dad is my Guardian Angel. He watches over me and protects me. There have been instances in my life that I could feel his presence, of this I am sure. These words came from my heart because of my Angel dad. In my heart, he has spoken these words to me.


When Heaven Called

When Heaven called to take me home
You cried sweet tears for me,
I was so sick, without a cure
So He helped set me free!

Though life was short, it was quite sweet
And yes, some times were bad,
But better times meant so much more
Because I lived some sad!

I know my death has caused you grief
But please just think of this,
When you arrive at Heaven’s door
I’ll greet you with a kiss!

For now you have to keep the faith
And know within your heart,
That even though you can’t see me
We’re never far apart!

With angel wings my soul flies high
I keep watch over you,
And deep within your loving heart
You know this to be true!

You’re never far away from me
I’m with you when you cry,
And when you go to sleep at night
I wipe your teardrops dry!

On certain days you feel a sense
A warmth just known by few,
It’s something that is Heaven sent
A hug from me to you!

When Heaven called to take me home
Please know the time was right,
At peace, I went to be with Him
My darkness turned to light!

Suicide Is Devastating!

When a person chooses suicide, they feel as if they have no other way out. To them, they are ending the pain they have, whether it be physical or emotional. The people left behind are the ones who now suffer. Please remember, their goal was not to hurt their loved ones, but rather to put an end to the darkness they felt deep within their soul.

In Your Heart

Please understand what I have done
And don’t be mad at me,
Although I love you all so much
On Earth, I could not be!

I could not cope with all the pain
It was too much to bear,
And though I felt my choice was right
For you, it was not fair!

I left you with so many thoughts
And questions as to why,
There are no answers and no blame
It was my choice to die!

Please do not cry or carry guilt
You had no way to know,
That for some time this was my plan
I knew I had to go!

There’s nothing that you could have done
Deep down you know it’s true,
I wanted to leave pain behind
Not thinking I’d leave you!

Right now I really need your help
Please let go of your sad,
And know that God is here with me
He does not think I’m bad!

For sometimes we get lost in life
And darkness blocks our view,
Though now I’m here and see the light
My death I can’t undo!

So wipe your tears and celebrate
Remember me with glee,
And when you miss me, hold your heart
For that is where I’ll be!
