WINGS OUTSPREAD

I CAN HEAR THE ANGELS SINGING,
SWEET HARMONY FILLS THE SKIES,
A PRECIOUS ONE HAS ARRIVED.
TEARS FLOW WITH SADNESS,
HEARTS FILLED WITH LOVE,
A PRECIOUS ONE HAS DEPARTED.

OPEN ARMS AWAITING,
WARM EMBRACES SHARED,
A PRECIOUS ONE HAS ARRIVED.
SHARING OF MEMORIES,
SMILES SHINE ON FACES,
A PRECIOUS ONE HAS DEPARTED.

EYES BEHOLD THE WONDERS,
SHOWN THE GLORY OF HEAVEN,
A PRECIOUS ONE HAS ARRIVED.
A FOND FAREWELL IS GIVEN,
HEARTS ARE ON THE MEND,
A PRECIOUS ONE HAS DEPARTED.

A PLACE IS SET UP ABOVE,
COMFORT IS IN ABUNDANCE,
A PRECIOUS ONE HAS ARRIVED.
HEARTS RECEIVE A GIFT,
LOVE LEFT TO US BY ONE,
A PRECIOUS ONE HAS DEPARTED.

WINGS OUTSPREAD,
A HEART AGLOW,
A PRECIOUS ONE HAS ARRIVED.
TEARS OF HAPPINESS FIND THEIR WAY,
GENTLE CALMING SOON TO BE FOUND,
A PRECIOUS ONE HAS ARRIVED!

DEDICATED TO MY BROTHER,
CRAIG ROBERT WHITTON,
WHOM I LOVE SO MUCH!
