Cuddled in Heaven
We had so little time to share,
Too soon, I had to leave.
I know how much you love me,
I know how much you grieve.
I know how sharp your pain is,
I feel the aching in your hearts.
My life so quickly ended
Before it barely had a start.
I remember how you held me,
And kissed my face and hands,
You cuddled me so gently;
But, God had other plans.
I was your perfect angel,
From God you knew I came,
Suddenly he called me home again,
And now God holds my hand.
I know you'll always miss me,
I understand your pain is hard to bear.
Just remember that I'm in heaven
And we'll see each other there.
So smile when you think of me
and wipe away all of your tears
I'm cuddled now in heaven
By our family members here.
I'm waiting here in heaven,
And on the day we meet again.
I'll be the first to smile and greet you,
When God calls you home to him.
