She like butterflies
She likes the park
with the warmth of the autumn sky
The swings and screams
going down the rocket slide
Climbs the rock wall only to get to the top to hide
She knows soon she has to leave
Gazes off into the blue sky, she believes.

She's a fighter
A star igniter
Been through every theater
Nothing's ever beat her.


She's a rough rider
Visits delight her
She may be tired
But she still has missiles yet to be fired.


Now, I can't explain
I can't feel her pain
Not a clue
What she's been completely through.


So what do I do?
Stopping t
o precipitate
Many many prayers resuscitate
As angels wait.


Another vein bleeds
She pleads
She knows soon she has to leave
She believes
She's past tears

I've never seen her cry
Calmly with no fears
Just gaze off into the blue sky.
She's more prepared than I.

Beautiful...that last stanza is perfect.

This is a beautiful, heartful tribute. Angels waited for Breanne, and all of her suffering was carried away on the angels wings. The painting is beautiful as it creates a feeling of serenity and peacefulness, or she may have truly painted her vision of heaven. I think you express your emotions well, and you are a talented writer. I will add you to my "tracker list" because I want to read more of your writing!
