Angels Watching Over Me

The father of one of my best friends passed away this past weekend. As I was following her and my other best friend to her house this song kept playing through my head. During the hours since I left her exhausted and asleep on her couch I have come to realize that this song really reflects my view of where our loved ones are and what they are doing. I know that her dad and my mom though they never met this side of heaven are up there watching over all of us. Rest in peace Aaron and Mom and all those who have gone ahead.


ANGELS WATCHING OVER ME
Traditional

All night, all day,
Angels watching over me, my Lord.
All night, all day,
Angels watching over me.
Sun is a-setting in the West;
Angels watching over me, my Lord.

Sleep my child, take your rest;
Angels watching over me.
All night, all day,
Angels watching over me, my Lord.
All night, all day,
Angels watching over me.

This is very sweet. I wish I was familiar with this song, so I could hum the tune to myself.

Thank you Kathryn. This is very sweet. This is something I am struggling with right now.

I like the line:

"Rest in peace Aaron and Mom and all those who have gone ahead."

That is a nice thought, that they are finally resting without all the stress of the world on their shoulders. Sometimes I long for that day. But right now, I just long to see my dad one last time, face to face.

I know you know how I feel. Thanks for being so understanding and compassionate toward me during this heart breaking time.
