For an Angel

Numbness overcomes me
From this shock I want to flea


How can it be?
Her smile I will never see


Her usual words
I will never forget
“Have you met anyone yet?”


With a wicked grin
I’d giver her my usual answer
“Not yet, waiting for you
To find me a dream lover”


She would chuckle
and our little tradition
would go on
Only today she is gone
With her
Our ritual forgone


Each time I close my eyes
I see her image and I cry
For I never had the chance
To say my final goodbyes


Tomorrow, I kept saying
I’ll pay her a visit
Not realizing that God
Would be taking her spirit


The image of her beautiful face
Appears to me everyday
Her sweet smile, her kind eyes, her grace
From my head I can’t erase


In peace
She now lays
Separating me from her
Are only minutes, hours and days


So until then
I’ll say a little prayer
Asking God
to unit me with

her soon again


I dedicate this poem to my aunt who just recently past away, and I ask anyone who reads this poem to say a little prayer for her even if you don’t know her ..I’d really appreciate it, thanks.

Thank you vintage for your sweet prayer. I ask God to continue to enlighten you with inspiration and creativity. And to bestow upon you all that is good and keep all that is bad away from you. Thank you again

Dear Illusion:

We feel for you! Although you go by the monicker "illusion" , the pain you bring to bear in your prayers is most real and your aunt (Bless her soul) would be beaming with pride and joy, from up above, safe in the knowledge of having a sensitive and caring niece such as your good self.

Please remember, there's always going to be a part of your aunt that will continue to live in your memory of her.
I am sorry if I sound too patronizing : after all, grief is too personal and it is all too easy for the likes of us to urge you to move on. Just take your time, be yourself and I promise you you will come out alright!
After all, that's what your aunt would most want for you too.
