Why Doesn't She Just Leave?!
More Poetry >>
Written in memory of my cousin Tommy, who passed away suddenly in September 2017. I am writing this for his mum, my auntie Barbara who I
know has taken his death very hard.
I know I didn't contact you,
I know I didn't phone,
I know I didn't send a message,
Or come to see you at your home.
I know I didn't bring you flowers,
Like I used to do,
If only I had had the chance,
To come and spend more time with you.
Time meant I had to leave the earth,
And take my place in Heavens sky,
The angels gave me wings of strength,
They came to help me fly.
They showed me all the rainbows,
They protected me through the rain,
They held my hand and guided me mum,
So that I never felt the pain.
They ensured I was comfortable,
I simply closed my eyes,
And at that moment they held out their hands,
Then we flew amongst the butterflies.
As we flew amongst the clouds,
I had to stop and think,
I worried how you'd cope with this,
And I felt my heart sink.
I knew you would be heartbroken,
I knew the tears would start to fall,
I knew you'd question everything,
But I knew you'd miss me most of all.
I felt a silent tear fall,
As I thought of you mum,
All the times I had with you,
Were now just a memory to live on.
I felt my heart aching,
Though I knew I could not stay,
God had called me back to him,
And so I had to go away.
But here I am in Heaven now,
I visit you each day,
I sit beside you when you cry,
I softly wipe your tears away.
I wrap my arms around you,
And kiss you on your head,
I wish so much that you wouldn't cry,
I wish you'd smile for me instead.
Smile for the happy times,
The times I made you smile,
Keep those memories of me alive,
And be happy for a while.
Don't think I have gone,
For that simply isn't true,
Mum I will always simply,
Be there beside you.
