Once upon a time

There was a child ready to be born

One day she asked God

They tell me you are sending 

Me to earth tomorrow

How am I going to live there

Being so small and helpless

God replied

Among the many angels

I chose one for you

She will be waiting for you

And will take care of you

But tell me, here in Heaven

I don't do anything else but sing and smile

That's enough for me to be happy

Your angel will sing for you

And will also smile for you every day

And you will feel

Your angel's love and be happy

How am I going to be able to understand

When people talk to me, if I don't know

The language that men talk

Your angel will tell you the most beautiful

And sweet words you will ever hear

And with much patience and care

Your angel will teach you how to speak

And what am I going to do

When I want to talk to you

Your angel will place your hands together

And will teach you how to pray

I've heard that on earth, there are bad men

Who will protect me

Your angel will defend you

Even if it means risking its life

"But I will always be sad

Because I will not see you anymore

"Your angel will always talk to you

About me and will teach you the way

For you to come back to me

Even though I'll always be next to you

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven

The voices from earth could already be heard

And the child in a hurry asked softly

"Oh God, if I am about to leave now

Please tell me my angel's name

"Your angel's name is of no importance

You will call your angel

"Mommy"
