Today I saw an angel in her heavenly array.
In the glory of her face all the others fade away.
I saw her force a smile, push despair out of her eyes,
And then I saw a joy, a peace, that made her want to cry.
But it wasn’t me or mine that had a part to play,
‘Cept simply be around for her to say “Good day.”
What humbling so needful now, so painfully applied
For in your eyes, my love, I see
There’s no one in your eye.
