Even the Angels Wept

Her voice echoed through the hallways Of the pediatric oncology hospital ward When people saw the young girl who sang these songs They were stunned and they were floored She sang unaccompanied But there was music in her voice The children all felt better As if they hadn’t another choice She wasn’t paid to entertain them She wasn’t doing work for charity She wasn’t a doctor or nurse there to cure them She was a patient with one of the maladies Then, one day, the halls were silent Into her lungs the cancer had eventually crept Children and parents were disheartened Even, from up high, the angels wept But, the tear drops from angels Plus prayers from souls down here on earth Helped to bring about a medical miracle And her cancer, somehow, did reverse Her voice rang out again in a soft lullaby While future angels in their beds slept Once again hope was planted into patient’s hearts Once again, on high, the angels wept
