Angels on Earth
How do I thank you? You were just a phone call away, Offering emotional and physical support, Anytime, night or day.
Ho do I thank you? For the tender sympathy in your eyes, and for the compassion in your heart? You're like an angel in disguise.
How do I thank you? For helping me to stay strong? You helped lift the weight off my shoulders when, It was difficult to carry on.
How do I thank you? You were never patronizing impatient, or cruel, You guided me and you praised my efforts, Even when I wasn't sure what to do.
How do I thank you? There was no more suffering. The pain had ceased. You helped my dad finally let go, With dignity and peace.
How do I thank you? Even after dad had died, You called just to check on me, And I broke down and cried.
How do I thank you? For helping me work through my pain and giref? It was a year-long journey, But because of you I feel amazing relief.
So. I thank you by saying, Hospice Team never forget your worth, You are blessed. You are special, You are angels on Earth.
