Angel Returned to Heaven

An angel returned to heaven today deployed to erase gluttonous hate from envy's grasp love is pulled away To bring order to disarray supplying hope while replacing sloth An angel returned to heaven today Armed with beauty, charm and compassion pride is now faced with a trained assassin whether with song, a smile, a shoulder or ear greed, anger and lust is sent running in fear An angel returned to heaven today after years of service in the field from the mission never did she stray In our hearts she will forever stay so, let us remember, let us rejoice cause our angel returned to heaven on this day
