Help me Dearest Angels
As I meet this day,
Help me find my Annie
Who has gone away.

I miss her and I need her
My eyes are filled with tears
I cantít even remember life
before our ďAnnie yearsĒ .

I miss her cheery voice,
her bright and sunny smile
Please dear angels
give her back to me awhile.
Let me hear her say,
ďMom,feel my soft brown hairĒ
After she had just shampooed
and is standing by me there.

Donít let her memory fade
keep her close at hand
Show me how to face each day
Show me how to stand.

Must I forget my child
in order to go on?
Show me how to live
and yet to keep our bond.

Show me how to see
her lovely face so dear
Right now I cannot see
My eyes are blind with tears.

Help me Angels dear
Help me keep her near
Help me hear her voice once more
Help me feel her cheer.

Donít let the ashes claim her
Donít let this be the end.
Help me dearest Angels
Find my little friend.

Tell her I remember
each funny little deed -
Each hug, each kiss, each promise
more time with her I need.

I simply was not ready-
to see that tower fall.
I simply was not ready-
I still listen for her call.

How can I go on
without her by my side?
How can I go on
without my little guide?

Help me dearest Angels
Help ease my broken heart.
Help me find a way to live
this time we are apart.

Help me see the other side
Where she lives today
Help me know that she is safe
Take this pain away.

For I am truly useless
to those on either side
until I find my Annie
Until I find my guide.

You know I never travelled
Unless I knew Annie would be there.
For all the things that others liked
I never seemed to care.

But Annie seemed to think
that I should see the world.
So I endured the hassle,
It seemed to please my girl.

Everything seemed exciting
when seen through Annieís eyes
All of lifeís small wonders
seemed to sparkle and surprise.

Where now will be the wonder?
Where now will be the joy?
Donít let this riegn of terror
my sanity destroy.


Help me find a way to live-
to laugh- to cry -to love.
Help me carry on-
Guide me from above.

Help me be a blessing-
Help me clearly see-
I can be to others,
what Annie was to me.

She was my little teacher,
my little friend and guide,
Help me dearest Angels,
keep her by my side.

Help me see beyond the veil
to where she lives today.
Help me hear her as she speaks
in a brand new way.

Even though itís hard for me
Help me stretch and grow.
Help me travel once again
To where Annie is-I know.
