I was adrift on waves of feelings
swirling circles about my mind
wondering if I had the strength
to decide it was your time.
Did I have the right to make this choice
that would change our lives forever,
did I have the will to sacrifice
our precious time together?
Was I wrong in thinking of myself
while you grew so frail and weak,
was I selfish in my desperate need
to have you here with me to keep?
Into your bright eyes I searched
and found within your soul,
the echo of a far-seen wisdom
the kind which only angels know.
You gently rocked my broken heart
and with angelic calm
you lifted all the guilt I felt
for wanting to hold on.
Somehow you made me understand
the choice was never mine,
it had been appointed long before,
in another place and time.
So as I lay you down to sleep
your eternal spirit shines
and our paths will cross again someday
my Lucky Girl, angel of mine.
