God's Little Angels

by David Knape

All little angels
are at home in the sky,
but as they grow older
they grow wings to fly,
sooner or later
they tell heaven goodbye,
for all little angels
yearn to learn how to fly

God knows his dilemma
he ponders, here's why,
he questions them leaving
their home in the sky,
when he asks them to stay home
their common reply,
you made us, so let us
learn how to fly

Then off they go winging
harps sounding on high,
they make their own music
doing loops in the sky,
God watches in amazement
pride can't be denied,
his successful achievement
making angels that fly.
