Free from your body
This earthly cage
This was the final chapter
You've flipped last page

We are left here, looking
Upon this empty shell
The vessel in which you traveled
Had turned into your Hell

We are thankful it has ended
Although sad, to see you go
The angels came to take you
Just days before the snow

As you look down upon us
Remember us and smile
Although temporarily parted
We will join you in a while

    I am sure that you must write better 'freedom' than this. I am waiting....

    This poignant write touches the soul. It calls us to the reality of the passing of loved ones. It then gives us the hope of reunion. It says everything I'd want to say on such occasions. Well done my friend. Thanks for this and many other fine posts.... Jake

    I am thankful for this reminds me of my boyfriends Gramdmother Ellie...I had known her for just a short time but I loved her evenso...and she loved me...i was the only girlfriend he had ever had that she liked and thought was good enough for him...she kept asking for me before she went but I never got the chance to say goodbye...though I know that crazy loving woman is still with us. Thank you for sharing
