On a cold wintery night back in 1973.
A tale of mystery still so hard believe.

in the early morning hours the messenger came
we heard the footsteps upon the porch, an off again.
We held our breath for the knock on the door
Our hearts with fright frozen to the core
We three hurried to look outside
and found only the cold of winter reside
Puzzled, but not for very long
Soon we heard the ringing of the phone
Your dad has passed on we were told
we clung to each other, an tried to be bold
We knew then the angels had come
to forwarn that to death he had sucumbed
There's a guardian angel for all God's redeemed
to keep us safe from dangers seen an unseen
An omen from God we witnessed that night.
As my Daddys soul took its flight ...
