ONE NIGHT I CRIED TO JESUS

One night I cried to Jesus, As I sat beneath a tree
I looked into the open sky, And hoped he would answer me.
I'm lost Dear Lord, I've traveled far but still I seem to roam,
Please light the way, and lead me, Lord, I need to get back home.
I told him of my burdens,and the sadness in my heart,
I'd never felt so alone or so far apart.
Why did you take my child, Lord? I cannot understand.
No longer can I touch her face or hold her tiny hand.
I'm angry Lord, I'm missing her, I'm drowning in my sorrows.
Lord, please help me heal my yesterday and face each new tomorrow.
It was then I heard her gentle voice and felt her presence near.
How I wanted to hold her as I cried another tear.
She said, "Mommy I'm an angel now, my spirit is free,
I'm an angel in Heaven, so please don't cry for me.
I was chosen by our Lord above, and now I'm in his care.
When you need me, look inside your heart, I promise to be there.
No one can ever take away our bond with one another,
For I will always be your precious child, as you will be my mother.
So if you cannot find your way, or the road to home seems far.
Just look up to the heavens, I will be your twinkling star."
She said, "Mommy, I'm an angel now, my spirit is free,
I'm an angel in Heaven, no need to cry for me."
