21 in Heaven

I wonder how things work, up there in the promised land,
I am willing to bet that your party there this year will be  Grand.
Maybe there are other angel's tying up balloons and lighting chandeliers,
The love up there is more fullfiling then any we can find down here.
I bet you can dance now, and stand and walk all on your own.
I bet you sing amazingly, and you never have to sing alone.
I bet you have great discussions about all of us you left behind,
I just wanted to let you know, we are all going to be just fine.
See we are more blessed than most others ever get to be,
they wouldn't understand unless they felt love like you gave to me.
so Beautiful, so sweet, you were and are perfect in every way.
and I just wanted to say I miss you, and Happy Birthday!
Don't worry about us down here, you just enjoy your big day.
because, "I'm turning 21 with Jesus" is something we can only dream to say.
our tears aren't from sadness babygirl, this I hope you know.
It's just it's hard for us all to have a love so sincere and then have to let it go.
But, you go on back to your party and dance with your grandpa once for me.
and just know that I am happy for you, these tears,.... well sissy they are for me.
I love you bunches babygirl, there isn't anything I wouldn't give for another chance,
to just swoop you up into my arms, and have another dance.
I know I can't just yet but, please know I honor the memory,
of those days I was  dancing with the Angel the good Lord sent to me,
I know that time has passed now, what was loaned must be sent home.
Just it's hard on your Birthday.... for us not to feel a little alone.

    I don't often mark poems as a favorite. But, this will be one of them. I am absolutely floored with what you did here. So many emotions, so much reflection. I am truly stunned by the perspective you applied in this incredible writing.

    It's never easy to have a glass half-full mentality when the hurt is so abundant. I definitely understand. It was a pleasure to read this. :)

    I appreciate it very much, especially coming from you. It is one of my more personal poems and it was a challenge trying to pen it in a positive light when I wanted to do is whine about her being gone. I am very touched you enjoyed it so much. Katei
