My precious Angel,
where have you gone.
I can’t see you,
and I feel all alone.

Have you abandoned me,
or are you very busy.
I need you beside me
so that I can carry on.

Angel Pie what could I have done,
to deserve this heartache
that has only just begun.

Did I do something wrong,
I am being punished.
It will take very long
for me to be forgiven
and again become strong.

Why did you go away,
you weren’t here for very long.
I am frustrated and angry too,
I can’t touch your cheek
and I want to hug you.

Can time be reversed,
so that I can be with you again.
Look at your face and
talk for hours on end.

Why was it you,
and not someone else.
I don’t understand
and I really need your help.

I have prayed and I’ve pleaded
for you to come home.
But I know that you can’t,
so I will have to accept
that you are in Heaven,
happy and content.
