Have you forgotten the smell of her kitchen?
The sound of her voice when you flew to her arms
The beat of your heart when she bid you to follow
Her house seemed to swallow the world and it's harms.
Did he take off his hat and place it on your head?
Did you climb on his lap and bounce on his shoe?
His large callused hands could tenderly tickle
His eyes like an arrow, did they pierce you through?
Do you remember when she fed the stranger?
Or handed a buck to the small orphan boy?
He put his change in the bell ringers bucket
And played Santa Claus with a hug and a toy.
Did you think of her when you smiled at the new kid?
Or took food to the widow and shoveled her snow?
Did you see his eyes when you helped fix that tire?
Or picked up that dog that had no where to go?
So here is the secret this gift you've been given
From the ones who inspired you so long ago
You best be so watchful and careful and ready
For you're somebody's Angel you know!
