Message From The Heart - Poem by Sarita Milliner

One cold October evening, we were sitting at your bed
Conversing with friends, not knowing what was ahead.
We talked, laughed and reminisced, to relax away our fears
We did what we’ve always done, throughout our many years.
It did my heart good my friend, to see your familiar smile
A short time later you closed your eyes, to nap for a while.
One cold October evening, my thoughts went back in time
From the day we met in 58’, to marriages yours and mine.
Together we did so many things, as best friends often do
We played, partied, traveled, and shared many stories too.
Soon you will be walking, the stairs to Heaven’s gate
No worries my friend, we’ll meet again, and I will not be late.
One cold October evening, a shadow covered the sky
As I peered out the window, a band of angels passed by.
I couldn’t help but notice, that they were not alone
For I also saw a silhouette, perched upon a throne.
Ring, Ring went the phone, and in my heart I knew
No one had to tell me, God sent the angels for you.
