Child Angel Poem 1: God’s Little Angel

God needed an angel in Heaven
To stand at the Savior’s feet;
His choice must be the rarest
A lily pure and sweet.
He gazed upon the mighty throng
Then stopped and picked the best,
Our child was His chosen one
With Jesus she’s

[he’s] now at rest.

Child Angel Poem 2: Darling Angel Swept Away

No stain was on her little heart,
Sin had not entered there;
And innocence slept sweetly on
That pale white brow so fair.
She was too pure for this cold earth,
Too beautiful to stay;
And so God’s holy angel bore
Our darling one away.

Child Angel Poem 3: My Little Angel

You’ve just walked on ahead of me,
And I’ve got to understand…
You must release the ones you love
And let go of their hand.

I try and cope the best I can,
But I’m missing you so much…
If I could only see you
And once more feel your touch.

Yes, you’ve just walked on ahead of me,
Don’t worry I’ll be fine…
But now and then I swear I feel
Your hand slip into mine.

Child Angel Poem 4: Your Angel Baby

In a baby castle, just beyond your eye,
Your baby plays with angel toys that money cannot buy.
Who are you to wish him back into this world of strife,
No, play on your baby, he’ll have eternal life.
At night when all is silent and sleep forsakes your eyes,
You’ll hear his tiny footsteps come running to your side
His little hands caress you so tenderly and sweet,
You’ll breathe a prayer and close your eyes and embrace him in your sleep.
Now you have a treasure that you rate above all others
You have known true glory,
You are still his mother.
In a baby castle, just beyond your eye,

Who are you to wish him back into this world of strife,
No, play on your baby, he’ll have eternal life.
At night when all is silent and sleep forsakes your eyes,
You’ll hear his tiny footsteps come running to your side
His little hands caress you so tenderly and sweet,
You’ll breathe a prayer and close your eyes
and embrace him in your sleep.
Now you have a treasure that you rate above all others
You have known true glory,
You are still his mother.

Child Angel Poem 5: A Special Girl (Boy)

She (he) was so very, very special
And was so from the start,
You held her (him) in your arms
But mainly in your heart

And like a single drop of rain
That on still waters fall,
Her (His) life did ripples make
And touched the lives of all.

She’s (He’s) gone to play with angels
In heaven up above,
So keep your special memories
And treasure them with love.

Although your darling daughter (son)
Was with you just a while,
She’ll (He’ll) live on in your heart
With a sweet remembered smile.
