Celebration of Life.

Walking to Paradise II

©2004 Tyrone Vincent Banks


Your wait is over

You walk into your new home in heaven

We celebrated your life last night

A night of sadness

A night of hope

A night of redemption

Hundreds of friends and family members were there for you

We all remember you for your spirit

And your spirit will live on


There was this one song

One that was your favorite

“Magnify Me” or something containing those words


That song touched a part of me and I heard it in your voice

I knew it was like your voice as you would sing often

…Your angelic voice

They called you a song-bird last night

We talked about you and how you set the example


A part of me changed

I realized that self-pity is not the answer

I realized that I need to go to church more often

I realized that my faults are many but the answer is so clear

Christ died so that we may be forgiven for all sin

God will always forgive

Know Christ and know yourself


I awakened in a good mood today

My body felt stronger

My mind was clear

All of this after one night in the House of the Lord

Imagine to possibilities – if I was to visit that house more often

As my spirit gains strength – so do I


Your legacy is clear




Through Christ, all things are possible


And Vickey


You have shown me the way…


Dedicated to Victoria Mendes

Rest in Peace.
