For John

If only this message could make it to heaven.
All the things I would say,
pour out my heart,
truly talk to my friend.
I would speak of good times,
to hear your silly laugh.
As I forever wait for your reply.
If only, if only 

All that’s left are the memories past.
Now you are a greater being,
you could no longer roam the earth,
and as you ascended into heaven,
you gave each of us a piece of you
to keep in our hearts.
I smile knowing you are sharing stories with God,
and lifting the spirits of the angels.

If only this message could make it to heaven.
It would float on my tears 
And fly on sorrow’s wings
to reach the familiar destination of your heart. 
If only, if only this message would make it to heaven

My brother, my friend,
Hear my heart.
We love you.
We miss you.

    Sometimes it helps the heartache to get it down on paper and share with others. You came to the right place and I feel your sorrow. Thank you Jalisa for your sweet visit and comments.
