REST IN PEACE LITTLE ANGEL


A little angel that visited from heaven
You couldn't stay to see the years unravel
Your father the creator had other plans for you
It is time for you to receive the blessing that in his plans for you is long overdue
A place in his warm bosom
For your little wings to grow and blossom

Your work you have done so diligently
You gave your mum joy and happiness immeasurable
Like a flower that grows right in the middle of ruble
In your eyes she learnt the most guarded secret of life, unconditional love
You brightened her days with your bubbly colorful ways
You are a message of hope forever branded in her heart

We are deeply saddened by what to us is a sudden departure
But his ways are not our ways
His thoughts are higher than our thoughts

Rest assured your mummy loves you
Her love for you is undoubtedly true
She will miss your cries and your laughter
The pain of losing you might never get any softer
But let not your innocent soul worry, because memories of you live forever in her heart
Know that the same God that is going to care for you in heaven
Will send angels to surround your mum here on earth

Have a safe flight back to heaven little angel
I have no doubt in my mind that is your next stop
Because heaven as a last destination for you is a given
Just like a rainbow after a storm is given
May your wings mature to spread more love and happiness

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
