When I thought you'd really left
I froze in sorrow, so bereft
But then you touched my soul and said
"Look here friend, I am not dead!
What you see is but a body
Feel the breeze? That's me
Hear the whisper of the grass drinking in the rain?
That's me again!"
I blinked and saw you in the sun
Winking through the trees, having fun
Warmly whispering "I'm really alright
I've entered forever
I'm surrounded by light"
You've made it, my Angel
Past the trials and strife
In heaven's embrace now
You're larger than life.
