My mother in law had a massive stroke last night and is not expected to live past the next forty eight hours. she was a wonderful woman but now at 91 years old she has earned and deserves eternal rest. This write is for her...

A Brand New Angel She Will Be


I see grieving tears fall all around me

Cry for what they know they’ll miss

I looked in her eyes and saw contentment

Someone who’s granted their last wish


She’s waiting for sound of Angel wings

To escort her on her joyful way

Her mind reliving her fondest memories

Somewhere she can hear the Angels pray

Her family gathered round her bedside

Cry a river full of goodbye tears

Sons, daughters and grandchildren too

That she’s loved throughout the years

It’s hard to say goodbye and let her go

To that place reserved way up on high

We must let them go to spread their wings

When a new born angel learns to fly…

Felix, you have done a wonderful job of pointing out the most important, positive aspect of this lifetime event and reality -- my prayers and condolences for you and your family members my dear friend -- peace and love -- Jon Michael

Bless... but angels are borne in the eyes and the light falling on the faces and hair of those who are ready to take their leave of this mortal coil, Felix, and it is a beautiful thing to witness. As others have noted and it's true what we all know: it's tough being the ones having to watch them take that first step into flight on their maiden voyage, while our own feet remained glued to earth. May there be peace and a sense of rightness about all this - if, indeed it IS the right time! You will know. Strength and comfort in the passing, Felix. We are at your side(s) xxxxxx

PS... you may not want to read my present post, FUNNY. The title's ironic and I don't think you will find it so right now... Sorry about this! :(( xx

Truly heartfelt, my friend, and may your family receive strength from your words.

Fee, long time ago someone told me that at the end of a long life there is the beginning of a eternity and that we shouldn't cry, we shouldn't do it if we loved and care, if we never hurt or disappointed, if we never failed to say thanks, then...the goodbye wouldn't be so heavy, because it will be not weighed down with regrets.
God bless.

A magnificent tribute to a life well lived, Fee. Very nicely done. It reminds me a bit of one of mine that's been used in a number of funerals.

I wonder if with newborn angels they give out permits first then go to licensing & do they have to take tests like they do with driving instructors...condolences in advance on your loss in the next 48 hours

I saw from my years in the medical field, the more love there is the easier to let go. Prayers go with you and family, my friend.

I'm so sorry for your loss. But you bring the negative to a beautiful positive, for although you'll miss her very much, she'll have angels watching over her for eternity.

Ahhhh, Fee. You've expressed sadness and joy all in the same poem so wonderfully. I had an aunt who lived to be ninety-six. She also had a stroke. I was there when she passed and shortly before she said to me, "Honey, I'm tired and it's time for me to go. Don't be sad, be happy for me."
Reviewed by Poetess of The Soul Sheila G
So Sorry her time has come Sweet Fee!
Your sweet divine poem did her justice, as another Angel makes it to and from Heaven!

as she spreads her wings to freedom, peace and contentment!
R.I.P. and God Bless to her, and Strength to you all!
