The child I loved has gone away

But always can be found
Within the breeze of heaven's breath
On earth her spirit's bound
When Autumn leaves begin to fall
With colors deep and warm
I think of her with all my love
And hear her special songs
Within the heart that beats with love
With every passing day
I pause and think of her with joy
So glad she came my way
I hear her laughter in the breeze
Her touch so soft and strong
Assuring me that she is there
When sadness brings a storm
I pray that when I close my eyes
On Christmas morning day
My Angel will be next to me
With tender words she'll say
Within your heart a special key
That opens up the sky
So I can come to you on earth
And never say "goodbye"
Oh my heart be still at last
My wishes have come true
For Maddie is a part of me
With every breath anew
My little girl who filled my soul
With love beyond compare
Wings now wrapped around my heart
It's Christmas everywhere.
