Undercover Angel

I wish I could sing you a song,
if I could carry a tune.
I would give anything and everything,
if I could just see you soon.
I spread my wings and take to the air,
because you help me to fly straight.
I would stand in the rain for hours,
because you're worth the wait.

You're my undercover angel
that was sent to watch over me from God one day.
I pray that He won't need you back too soon,
and have to take you away.
I hope that you can stay a little longer
then it's been planned.
Please don't slip away from me,
like sand escaping through my hand.

When I'm dying, you force me to breathe.
When I'm fading away, you never leave.
When I'm struggling, you take up the pain I bear.
When I was hurting, you were the only one who'd care.

Dear God,

Please have mercy on me, a sinner.
Don't take my angel away from me.
Amen
