Charles J. Burkett

August 16, 1922 ~ March 27, 2019 (age 96)


Because The Angels Came


No more grief or sorrow,

no more suffering or pain,

now there is everlasting peace because the angels came.

Only God knows what is best and He gently holds my hand .

Guiding me to a better place because the angels came.

When the sun rises tomorrow and I answer not my name,

Please don’t cry

Rejoice with me because the angels came.

I now can rest in peace as 1 never could before,

answered the gentle knock of the angels at my door.

So please don’t mourn for me as new wings I now claim,

I can take my flight to heaven because the angels came.
