Angel Wings


Copyright © 2012 Tryphena Louise Williams


I am an angel without any wings
I have lost my voice so I can’t sing
I am an angel without a Christmas Tree
It seems the children have forgotten me

There's an angel on top of the Christmas Tree
I can see her there smiling back down at me
The children don't want me anymore
I’ve been cast aside on the messy floor

I am an angel without any wings
I have lost my voice so I can’t sing
I am an angel without a Christmas Tree
It seems the children have forgotten me

A sweet child of love who was barely three
With delightful smile looked down at me
She picked me up with tears in her eyes
Saying Mummy why can’t this angel fly

I am an angel without any wings
I have lost my voice so I can’t sing
I am an angel without a Christmas Tree
It seems the children have forgotten me

The child of heart said I’ll help her fly
I’ll make her wings and give her eyes
She made me white feathery wings 
Then hung me up with golden rings

I am an angel without any wings
I have lost my voice so I can’t sing
I am an angel without a Christmas Tree
It seems the children have forgotten me

I was hung  in the window in the sunlight
My heart it sighed with heavenly delight
A child of heart wanted to see me fly
So she hung me up facing the sky
