God's Light

Written by: Kate Flatley

I saw the light
like a tunnel to heaven
there it lay, right over you
and you, I knew
were waiting for your death

God, I knew
already had you
an angel in his sights

Your acceptance 
was admirable

Weeks later you were gone
and many people lost

But I know you more in death
than in life

I read your poetry
I know you more

You were wise
I know that for sure
