An Angel too Soon
Upon a cold Monday afternoon, I finished work the same as any other day,
But then I received a heart sinking message, one that was enough to turn me grey.
The colour drained out of me, I started to turn to stone,
An Angel too soon I thought, it sent a chill right to the bone.
My mind was a mess; I was dazed and confused,
I just sat there staring and re-reading the news.
A flood of tears poured out, I felt like I was going to drown,
An Angel too soon I thought, please don't go come back down.
I rushed to see my Loved ones; they confirmed that her time was near,
I couldn't believe what I was hearing, my body filled with fear.
Tuesday the 31st of January at 12:32pm, a day forever etched into my mind,
An Angel too Soon I thought, please don't leave us behind.
From that day on everything and everyday was just one big blur,
We all tried our best to cope; we wanted to do our best for her.
There were tributes galore, if only she could have seen,
An Angel to soon I thought, she was only a teen.
As we plan her final send off, we try to take the strain,
Our heart strings are weakened; we cannot take much more pain.
But the cracks start to show now the service is close,
An Angel too soon I thought, now we suffer these woes.
There are memories wherever we look, far too many to grin and bear,
We struggle to accept the reality, how can life be so unfair?
What do we do now? How and where can we go from here?
An Angel too soon I thought, as I shed another tear.
She was so nice, so kind and so caring,
She was so clever, so happy and so daring.
Always smiling, always chuckling and ever so polite,
An Angel too soon I thought, how can any of this be right?
But though her body light has faded, her soul burns brighter than ever as a star in the sky,
She is free from this human curse, free to explore the worlds; no longer does she have to cry.
We shall treasure the special moments and we promise that we'll stick together to make it through,
You're an Angel too soon, taken before her time but whatever happens, we will always Love you.
