The night the angels took you
to live with them above-
the world we live in down below
lost someone truly loved.
I know we were extremely blessed
when home with mom you came-
the first thing that we learned of you
'Buster' was your name.
Rowdy and rough, you made us laugh
and sometimes made us cry-
you were the youngest of us all
giving anything a try.
Through the years you grew into
the name that you were given-
a name that surely without doubt
came from the wings of heaven.
We were the same, you and I
from looks to our expressions-
we did our share causing mom and dad
Two black sheep, among the five
we were so much the same-
I laid the path with mom and dad
and then along you came.
You lived your life the way you chose
on the edge, some people said-
No matter where you were or what you did
you chose the life you led.
Our family and friends were there
as we wept and cried-
I know God was there watching too
with the angels by his side.
Some would say that can't be so
some say it isn't true-
but I know God was watching
the night the angels took you.
