To My Angel - Killian Joseph

Angel To Light My Way

A part of my inner being left that night
How will I survive?
You lived inside such a wonderful world
We never heard you cry
But we ponder it as the most beautiful sound
The powerful thud of your long feet
I felt every movement with pleasure
I will survive knowing you are at peace
A place I have not ventured
Yet somehow I imagine pleasant serenity
You appear often in my thoughts
Showing your bright energy in the clouds
Dark days are behind
For today I have an angel to light my way

April Star

Sweet angel, April star
Your hair was fine and silky
Eyes of a special kind
Those long fingers limp
I knew those feet were meant for something powerful
To dance on clouds and prance with style


A mother’s place is with her child
Why then, am I all alone?
A mother’s love is enduring
We all need to look above
My heart is beginning to heal
My soul is forever changed
The depth is surrounding me
When a mother is left to explain
The only answer is a question
A question of seeing her child again


The little boy wandered through the dark lonely sky
Until he caught his mother’s eye
She was smiling, feeling warm
He knew then, on that Christmas morn
His prayers were answered, his calling was true
He joined the ranks and started anew
She whispered "I love you" and a tear came down
He caressed her heart without a sound
Today is the start of something special
A new beginning for her dying vessel
She laid her head on her husband’s lap
They knew then, how to fill the gap
Finish the family, fill a need
Make this Christmas, by planting a seed

Time Is Right

We watched the hazy clouds roll by
As a teardrop fell from our eyes
We had to say goodbye today
To our child, in the ground he lay

Go play with those who went ahead
We will not look at this with dread
Mommy and Daddy are here with you
Visit us when we are blue

Show us the light and get us by
Travel with us when we cry
Whisper softly in our ears
Don’t fret son, we will hear

Gentle reminders to guide us through
So we can begin fresh and new
You will never be far from our thoughts
We will learn from all you’ve taught

Someday we will join you way up high
We’ll come and play with you in the sky
Until we do, try to be
Up in the clouds so we can see

We love you more than you’ll ever know
We’ll carry on so we can show
Our love is with you day and night
We’ll be with you when the time is right

Angel In The Night

Angel in the night
Angel in the sky
Let us see the light
Let us quite rely

Our house is filled with sorrow
Our house is filled with grief
We hope that there’s tomorrow
We hope that there’s relief

Dark wonders of the universe
Dark wonders of the day
Travel through our souls reverse
Travel through Your way

Slowly, softly, carefully
Quickly, loudly, carelessly
Stepping with foundation
Tripping with hesitation

We will see the light
We will just get by
Angel in the night
Angel in the sky

God’s Rarest Breed

Angel, Little Wonder
Little Promise, Little Boy
We didn’t get to love on you
Or let you bring us joy

Our arms are filled with emptiness
Our hearts are filled with pain
We search for all the answers
Our response is only rain

He called for you to fill a need
We know that you’ll succeed
You are special in this universe
You are God’s Rarest Breed

A gift to let the stars shine bright
To help each of us see His light
They can’t tell us about the power of love
‘Cuz you were sent for from far Above

How were we to know
When we were planting your tiny seed
How important it was for you to grow
Into God’s Rarest Breed

Killian-Little and Warlike
Joseph-Gentle and Saintlike

The name we chose was no mistake
We were blessed with insight into what you’d make

We know you fought until the bitter end
We didn’t know you were to ascend

We were lucky, the few, the rare
We held an angel, it seemed unfair

Blessed for a hint of time
And yet we felt so sublime

Our pallets were moistened, our curiosity struck
We had a lifetime with you in the tick of a clock

We Have An Angel

Living life on a whim
Never a care about Faith,
Mystery and Hope for the future
These chances did not exist

Life was about living, not worrying
Life embraced the heart
Life led without questions
Life worth being with no meaning

Not until that April Day
Chance became our reality
A spirit came alive somehow
A glimmer of hope and peace touched

One Day, one tiny light entered
How ironic it was
Our child died but conviction born
Belief that we will survive

A bright star now shines our way
Beautiful music making clouds dance
A gift to show us ever love
We have an angel to guide us through
