What Angels Do

You’re heavenly
And naturally
I wonder what happened to your halo
Little one, I wonder too
What happened to my own
Clearly we trade in some things
For human packaging

Still I wonder how it is I know.
Must be that thing you do
Every time I look at you
And see a wisdom gazing back at me
Resurrecting long forgotten truths
As I recall
That’s just what angels do

It’s all a play
All the world’s a stage
One day you’ll feel it calling
Run with it
All your life
Just remember darling
It’s not so much the part you play
As the part of you I see today
The whole world longs to be recalling
Just do that thing you do
Every time I look at you
And see a wisdom gazing back at me
Resurrecting long forgotten truths
Well why wouldn’t you
You’re an angel
Just like everyone you’ll ever know
Even if you forget
And mock me for saying it
Still every time I look at you
I’d had to think
That’s what angels do
We forget, we forget
It’s true
Didn’t you? All of you, angels listening too
Did you forget, and did you know?
That’s just what angels do.
