God has chosen another flower of Beauty,
One to bring back home
Dear Angel so new, that our paths never crossed,
May I please thank-you now
For your wonderful Son?
He accepted his role as a Man today,
With strength beyond years of eighteen
You taught him so much in a very short time,
The essentials of life and what it should mean
As you passed slowly
Into the light,
His world lost color, it turned shortly dark
His garden felt empty,
Its colors, bare
But just why you went,
He could accept in his heart
Glistening stars in the evening sky,
Presence of rainbows,
Just after a storm
Are just some of the signs you’ll give to him,
That you’re now at peace,
And never so far from home
He knows that you’ll,
Hear his whispers, his prayers
As when you lived, like all Fathers do
You’ll not forsake in his hardest times
That your love is eternal as,
His love is for you
It is an honor to have him here in our lives,
This gift, that you did create
Trust that we’ll look out for him here,
On the opposite side
Of Heaven’s Gate
Written for my Daughters Boyfriend who lost his Dad Saturday night to brain cancer. His strength and faith has gone above and beyond anything I have ever witnessed, He himself, is angelic.
A beautiful tribute. The bond of a father to son that wields such strength is rare and a true blessing for the future.
I’m sorry about it.
My condolences to the bereaved, and also to your daughter. I imagine she is close enough to the family that she is feeling their pain. I will say a special prayer for both her and her boyfriend. The poem is absolutely beautiful, you have truly captured the raw emotion, and the sadness is almost palpable. It must’ve been very difficult for you to write this and I thank you for sharing it.
What was hard, D is that I started it the night before he died….then had to change it to the past. I thank you and yes, she is very close to the Family. The emotion came from just how tender and wise this young man is. Hugs, H.
Sending prayers to the family💖 Being with those who are in mourning gives a new perspective. Your daughters boyfriend is blessed.

Yes, and that will be my next write. The title is always placed when it is normally the last. I look at these two young adults in awe and wonder just where their heart and soul came from. They are both truly a gift. Thank you ❤ , H.
My prayers are with your family and his. I’m sure they are heartbroken by his life being cut short. It must be devastating to daughter. Seeing her in pain must be very difficult. The poem was beautiful, I’m sure he would have iked it. I’m here for you. Tell me what I can do for you.
Thank you ❤
