- another "Borrowed Angel"

(August 2, 1999 - October 1, 2007)

 

They shine a little brighter.
They feel a little more.
They touch your life in ways no one has ever done before.
They love a little stronger.
They live to give their best.
They make our lives so blessed.
So why do they go so soon -
the ones with souls so beautiful?
I heard someone say,
"There must be borrowed angels here in this life.
They come along into this world
and make this world bright.
But they can't stay forever
'cause they're Heaven sent
and sometimes Heaven needs them back again."

They reach a little deeper
to see what's in your soul.
And even when they leave, you know,
you'll never let them go.
The world's a little richer
just 'cause they came along.
Their love goes on and on.
So why do they go so soon -
the ones with souls so beautiful?
I heard someone say,
"There must be borrowed angels here in this life.
They come along into this world
and make this world bright.
But they can't stay forever
'cause they're Heaven sent
and sometimes Heaven needs them back again."

How else can you explain
why they're here and not here to stay?
I believe there must be, must be,
borrowed angels here in this life.
They come along into this world
and make this world bright.
But they can't stay forever
'cause they're Heaven sent
and sometimes Heaven needs them back again.
Sometimes Heaven needs them back again.

A lullaby for Sydney:

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

- "Blackbird," Paul McCartney (Beatles) MP3 Audio/Lyrics http://www.loriblakeley.name/loriblakeley_music/blackbird.htm
