I heard that there was an angel in the town
I searched the town upside down
Dejected, one eve as I was sitting wearily
My daughter came home and sat on my lap merrily…
She cuddled me, she gave me a kiss
Her kiss gave me an ultimate bliss…
I looked silently at her heavenly eyes
And discovered it was my eternal paradise!!!
Her fairy-like poise had a soothing calm
Her actions had a majestic charm!!!
Like a happy star I saw her face twinkling
Soft words from her lips were jingling!!!
Her loving touch made me realise
She had always been my angel in disguise…
While I was hopelessly searching in Paris and Rome
The angel was silently perched in my sweet home!!!
I hugged her and I took her in my arm
I let myself free in her angelic warmth
So lucky was I to have her with me
Finally at peace - I smiled with glee.
