Taking Him Home (standard:poetry, 142 words)
Author: blue's girlAdded: Dec 25 2000Views/Reads: 2229/3Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
This is a poem about a boy who lived down stairs from me as a child. He was taken away too soon in an accident right before my eyes... This is for Steven

Though I didn't know him well, I just didn't understand. Why I wanted to
be loving him, Why I longed to hold his hand. 

I prayed for a miracle, As God took his breath From his cold and
lifeless body and escorted him to death. 

So small and so fragile, He stared at the sky. I stood there in tears As
we all watched him die. 

We were heartbroken. I tried to be strong. And I asked my father,
"Daddy, where has he gone?" 

"He's gone up to heaven," He said with a smile. "Try to be brave."
"You'll be sad for a while." 

Now I realize God was taking him home And he must have had A small
purpose of his own. 

Because now he's an angel And he's taking his flight. He's trying his
wings In the starry sweet night.
