A cool summer night A cloudy sky, no stars to be seen Another one of the angels gone Taken to heaven forever Close your eyes and listen carefully The sound of beating wings Softly fluttering back and forth Whispers of love and of loss Cries of agony and of pain Raise your face to heaven Offer your tears as a sacrifice Your pain will be slowly erased Memories will take its place Thoughts of joy and of laugther Numbing the aching pain of loss The loss of love and the taking of an angel This poem is dedicated to my mother who passed away on August 2, 1996. She was a strong woman who fought a seven year battle with cancer. She was my inspiration for everything I do. I miss her very much. On that night God took home an angel and we here on Earth were no longer blessed with her presence, smile, and love. She fought hard and is now resting.
