God Gave us An Angel

God gave us an angel right here on earth,
She took care of dad for all she was worth,
She guided him through life and was his light,
She always was there to make sure things were right.

She stood by his side when things were rough,
She told him in bad times he need to be tough.
She was there when he needed her throughout all the years,
She laughed with him in happy times, and comforted his tears.

This angel on earth was sent from above,
She was paid not in wages, but with all our love.
She was dad's rock and protector, someone in whom he could confide,
And when dad's job was done, her love gone, she wished to be by his side.

She needed not a halo, or silken wings of grace,
She was devoted to dad always a smile on her face.
She followed him shortly, because she missed him so,
Her name Louise, the Macool family angel you know
