IN MY MIND

By Jenn Farrell

 

Somewhere in my dreams tonight

I’ll see you standing there

You look at me with a smile

“Life isn’t always fair”

 

You say you were chosen for his garden

His preciously hand picked bouquet

“God really needed me.

That’s why I couldn’t stay”

 

It’s said to be that angels

Are sent from above

I’ve always had my angel

My Son whose heart

Was filled with love.

 

Whereever the ocean meets the sky

There will be memories of you and I

When I look up at the sky so blue

All I see are visions of you

“While there’s a heart in me, you’ll be a

part of me.”
