As each one left the room last night
We knew that with the morning light
The angels may have beat us to your door
One hug, one kiss, one last good bye
“I love you” filled each tearful eye
And every heart left yearning for one more.

With angels hovered overhead
And loved ones circled round your bed
I sensed your spirit readying to roam
I felt their presence gently tug
As I retrieved one final hug
And while we slept the angels took you home.

In memory of Esther Allard. Dec. 22, 1920 – Jan. 21, 2009
