I see the brightness of your soul,
As you descend from up above.
Your face blessing the world
With a beauty unknown by men.
I wonder how it was that you entered my heart,
And I can tell you I don't want you to leave.
Heaven is a place in your arms,
And not just a place that you lived.
Why did God let you come and see the despair,
And how is it that I was blessed with knowing?
My heart on my sleeve,
And my words, do they touch you?
When I am talking to you,
And when I am seeing you,
Do you know I am in Heaven?
Why was I allowed to see such beauty,
When he knew I felt so lost?
Why was I allowed to gaze into Heaven,
When I looked into your eyes?
I may never have the answers,
But my heart is yours,
And I know that with an angel
Such as you,
My heart will remain in Heaven.
