My angel up in Heaven,
I wanted you to know
I feel you watching over me 
everywhere I go.
I wish you were here with me
but that can never be,
Memories of you in my heart, 
that only I can see.
My angel up in Heaven, 
I hope you understand 
that I would give anything
if I could hold your hand.
I'd hold on so tightly 
and never let it go,
and all the love inside of me
to you, I would show.
My angel up in Heaven,
for now we are apart 
you'll always live inside of me,
deep within my heart.
