Heaven Gained an Angel Poems

God Took Another Angel Home

You laid there in that hospital
bed; you tried so hard to hold on.

God was calling you home. He needed
another angel to help pour out the rain.

Tears have fallen, hearts where shattered,
but it was time for you to fly home.

Your loved ones came to say their last goodbyes,
to tell you they loved you, and that you will be forever missed.

As your heartbeat stopped, and your eyes slowly closed,
God took another angel home.

Christina Wallace

Heaven’s Gained Another Angel

When I saw that you had died, 
I couldn’t believe my eyes. 
It felt like someone reached inside my chest 
and broke my heart in two.

When I heard what happened
All I felt was guilt, sadness and pain.
Yet I couldn’t face the truth 
that we had all lost you. 

It wasn’t till that day
when i was sitting at your funeral Staring at your coffin, 
That’s when it hut me, When i really knew.
Knew that you weren’t coming back
To tell one more knee- slapping joke.

I was holding out, Hoping it was all a dream,
But it really wasn’t and that’s what kills me. 
Right there i knew we’d lost you
and it broke my heart in two. 

I didn’t think it would be that hard saying goodbye to you
But i was wrong,
So very wrong indeed. 

When i saw your family the pain fresh in their eyes, 
All i could do was hug your mum and feel you once again, 
My voice it croaked as i said i was sorry, 
All i could feel was a lump in my throat. 

I know that you are happy and smiling down on us,
We hope you are well and safe with your family. 
It toke me a while to accept it,
That you’re truly gone but it still hurts to think of you,
To think of the life you should have lived.

All my days feel like a blur.
I’m missing you more than i ever did before.
I smile your smile, I miss your laugh, 
I miss the way you went around your day. 
But i think you ought to know
I really did love you All those years ago. 

You made me laugh,
You made me smile.
You made me feel a special way about myself with just a smile. 
You managed because you are you, 
And that’s whats so special about you. 

I will never meet someone as incredible
Nor amazing as you in my life again 
And the thing is I’m okay with that. 
Because there can only be one of you. 

 You truly are one of a kind 
and i’m glad i got to know you,
That our paths crossed in life. 

I wish we had more memories
More laughs and smiles there too. 
But maybe in our next life.

I’ll hold you in my heart till i die. 
I won’t say goodbye just yet,
I’m not ready for that. 
So instead I will say Good Night
and i hope i see you again

I really will miss you more than you will ever know. 
I really do love you And i wish i told you so. 
You will hold a place in my heart forever
Good night, Sleep Well And I Hope To See You Soon

Annie Bernie

My Angel Up in Heaven

My angel up in heaven,

I wanted you to know,

I feel you watching over me,

everywhere I go.


I wish you were with me,

but that can never be,

Memories of you in my heart,

that only I can see.


My angel up in heaven,

I hope you understand,

That I would give anything,

if I could hold your hand.


I’d hold you oh so tightly,

and never let you go,

And all the love inside of me,

to you I would show.


My angel up in heaven,

for now we are apart,

You’ll always live inside of me,

deep within my heart.

Heaven Got Another Angel

The roses aren’t as pretty
The sun isn’t quite as high
The birds don’t sing as sweet of a lullaby
The stars are a little bit faded
The clouds are just a little more gray
And it feels like things won’t ever be the same

Heaven got another angel the night you left this world behind
Heaven got a little better the day that it took you away from me
I’m missing you tonight
I’ll see you again sometime
For now, I’ll close my eyes
And dream of heaven tonight

The beaches aren’t as lovely
The sky isn’t quite as blue
Still, they’re sweetened by the memory of you
The rain is a little bit colder
The fire is never quite as warm
Still, it seems that heaven isn’t all that far

Heaven got another angel the night you left this world behind
Heaven got a little better the day that it took you away from me
I’m missing you tonight
I’ll see you again sometime
For now, I’ll close my eyes
And dream of heaven tonight

I’m spending a little more time now with the things that mean a little bit more
I’m noticing the wonders of this world
I love with a little more hope now
I live with a little more peace
Cause I understand how precious life can be

Heaven got another angel the night you left this world behind
Heaven got a little better the day that it took you away from me
I’m missing you tonight
I’ll see you again sometime
For now, I’ll close my eyes
And dream of Heaven tonight

Angel in Heaven

One night as I sat beneath a tree 

I cried to our dear Lord above

I looked up into the open sky and hoped he’d answer me

Lord I’m lost, I’ve traveled far but I still seem to roam 

Please light the way and lead me back home



I told Him of my burdens 

And of the everlasting sadness in my heart

That from his lost love I never felt so apart 

Why did you take my grandad, Lord?

I just can not comprehend why 

No longer can I touch his face or hold his hand

His loving smile has gone



I’m angry, Lord 

I’m missing him like mad

I’m drowning in my grief and sorrow 

Please help me heal my sad



It was then I heard his gentle voice 

And felt his presence near 

How I longed for him to stay

As I cried another tear 



He said, ‘I’m an angel now 

My spirit is free 

I am an angel in heaven

So please don’t cry for me

I was chosen by our Lord above and now I am in his care 

When you need me look inside your heart

I promise I’ll be there 

I am an angel in heaven now 

So if you can not find your way 

or the road home just seems to far 

Look to the sky, I’ll be your guiding star’ 

He said, ‘I’m an angel now

My spirit is free 

I’m an angel in heaven now 

No need to cry for me.’

Brie Carter

Heaven Has a New Angel

Your pain is gone
Your stay was short
Your memory will last forever

You’ve touched so many
Loved by all
There for us we were about to fall

A whisper of an Angel you will be
The glory of an Angel your light shall be
Our new guardian Angel you will be

Heaven has a new Angel

Mark Petro

  1. Saying the person who died became an angel is scriptural wrong. Humans do not become angels and angels do not become humans. They are 2 different entities created by God. As far as them “watching over us” is also wrong. Once a person arrives in heaven they will be much too busy to be concerned with what’s happening here on earth. They will be so happy to meet their Saviour face to face and to be held in the arms of Jesus and enjoying the beauty of heaven than to be looking down on us or anything going on back on earth.
