This One's for You Mom:

ANGELS AMONG US

I was walking home from school, on a cold winter day, Took a shortcut through the woods, and I lost my way It was getting late, and I was scared and alone, But then a kind old man, took my hand, and led me home Mama couldn't see him, oh but he was standing there, And I knew in my heart, he was the answer to my prayers, Oh I believe there are, angels among us, Sent down to us, from somewhere up above, They come to you and me, in our darkest hours, To show us how to live, to teach us how to give, To guide us with the light of love, When life held troubled times, and had me down on my knees, There's always been someone, to come along, and comfort me, A kind word from a stranger, to lend a helping hand, A phone call from a friend, just to say, I understand But ain't it kind of funny, at the dark end of the road, That someone lights the way, with just a single ray of hope, Oh I believe there are, angels among us, Sent down to us, from somewhere up above, They come to you and me, in our darkest hours, To show us how to live, to teach us how to give,To guide us with the light of love, They wear so many faces, show up in the strangest places To grace us with their mercy, in our time of need, Oh I believe there are, angels among us, Sent down to us, from somewhere up above, They come to you and me, in our darkest hours, To show us how to live, to teach us how to give, To guide us with the light of love, To guide us with a light of love.
