My Brother Bill

Death came to my door today
I should of known it was for me
When I felt the winds blowing in 
The angels came to tell me 

I seen them in my dream
I Should of known as they
Were coming down nodding my way
They were so brilliantly bright to me

I forgot to listen to the message 
As they came to stand in front of me
I was awe struck when I seen them 

I never knew my brother was sick
It was cancer of the liver 
That struck him this day

I felt the tears stinging my eyes
I tried to keep them at bay 
It didn't work to my dismay 
Yes death came to my door 
And took my brother away

" my brother passed on the 6th of May 2011"

3 different dreams, first with my brother, next the angels came in 
my dream,,,, a month later my mother with my brother standing just behind her left shoulder. About two months later ,I seen my brother at front door about 10 seconds.

    Thank you so much for drawing my eyes to this verse. Such a difficult subject, sad, yet your poem is beautiful. Angels are as unique as the unique situations they are called to serve I think. Very touched by reading your experience with your brother's death, thanks for sharing…john

    I came back here to see if I could find one I'd not seen, but no such luck. anyway, you wrote me about aging. What month were you born? I am curious which of us is older by a few months. haha. Just this year I started getting a lot more white (gray?) hairs. I just hate it. always having to color it. you are lucky if you only have a few!!! Not to mention the little things I never saw coming. Ugggggg

    Debbie, sweetheart. I am not surprised the angels visited you. God sends them to special people, and you are definitely special....I'm sure they also brought comfort and strength with which to cope... Love you dearly.... Jake

    And so the angels softly sing as fall decends to bring the spring. A cold long winter ices veins. To be thawed out by summer rains. The seasons hold their mighty secrets. Reminding us what our soul forgets. That God is there in every day. To gently help us on our way. Take Care Debbie. :)

    this is so sad, Debbie. I read your comment below about your mom's dream? And did you dream of the angels too? I am sorry for your loss.

    My heart goes out to you for your loss... I lost 2 siters during a 5 year period... I hate death. Wish we did not have to welcome him or it in... but it is God's plan....thank you for your comment... and the reason of my leaving is to make poets happy..that I am finally gone..however.. more than a hand full are begging me not to please such poets ..always..pd

    God bless you and yours, Debbie, the 'angels' must have been sad bringing you this news. The sweet part is that they love you enough to bring it to you in person. I'd had dreams when my husband had passed on...they were so real, I thought he was playing a trick on me, keeping so still. Hope all's going well with you! I looked for your fairy write..I don't think I got the title right.:) Keep well..Mikki
