"Music to inspire and nourish the soul."

Angel

There is no greater demonstration of lasting love than of a person who gives of him/herself to tend an ailing spouse— especially a spouse who has lost the ability to see what one is doing for him/her or who doesn't even recognize the caregiver. I have seen several people who have demonstrated this kind of Christ-like love. One of them was my mother. I watched as she cared tirelessly for my father when he did not even know who she was. This song was written for her, an Angel.

Lyrics
Angel
His health is gone. His mind is, too.
In many ways he's like a child again.
Day and night she cares for him, providing for his needs,
This man who used to be her closest friend.

The day they made their wedding vows,
She never knew that he'd end up like this.
Daily her heart breaks anew. She does a thankless job.
He doesn't even know just who she is.

She's an angel, an angel,
Though she seems just an ordinary wife.
She holds sacred the vow she made so long before
To love him for the rest of her life.

She knows when he's gone she will yearn for him——
Not the way he is, but how he was.
When he is free from the prison of this life
She will miss the man that she loves . . . 
Just like she already does.

So every day she longs for him
To comfort her and quiet all her fears.
Wishing he would talk to her, she swallows her own needs.
He hasn't recognized her face for years.

She's an angel, an angel,
Though she seems just an ordinary wife.
She holds sacred the vow she made so long before
To love him for the rest of her life.

I hope that Heaven has a special place
For angels such as her
Who nobly stand to face
Things they never thought would occur.

She's an angel, an angel,
Though she seems just an ordinary wife.
She holds sacred the vow she made so long before
To love him for the rest of her life.
To love him for the rest of her life.
