An Angel Sent To Heaven

© Erika Kent

Published on July 2013

Sometimes I feel all alone
Because God sent him home.
We used to be so close,
But I miss him the most.
I used to ask him for prayer,
But now he's not even here.
When he stepped on Heaven's shore,
Oh, how he couldn't love God more.
He opened the door,
He kissed the floor.
We can talk about God all day,
And the memories we have will never fade away.
I shed a tear every night,
I tell God and my Grandpa goodnight.
Life had its ups and downs,
But you turned life all around.
Cancer ate him alive as he tried to survive.
Someday we all have to die.
Now he's a beautiful angel up in the sky.
I know you're in a better place,
But I can't wait till I can see your face.
I know you're watching over me and guiding me in everything I do.
The prayers you prayed and the things you did,
I want to say thank you and I love you.

This poem hits home for me also. I lost my grandfather to cancer on September 24th, 2001. The night before he passed was hard because I went to go see him and he was not in good shape. The last words I told him was I love you and do not leave. When my dad told me the next day on the 24th, I felt sick to my stomach and I ran into my bedroom and I cried my eyes out. I was only nine years old and just getting over what happened to my city of New York as well that exact month and year.

This reminds me of my grandfather who sadly passed from pancreatic cancer when I was around 6 years of age. His birthday would have been today and he is very sadly missed, however leaves lots of happy memories for me and my family to look back upon. Thank you for your brilliant poem, it touched me.

Thank you for making this poem it reminds me of my grand father who passed away when I was still small. He passed away from a heart attack and he died in our house. My wish is to meet him in real life:-((((

My grandfather passed away two years ago and this poem said everything I needed!!! He was definitely my rock, I could tell him anything, we were really close until I had to move to Adelaide with mum, dad and my siblings! It was one of the most hardest things to do! My grandfather passed away from lung cancer but I couldn't go to his funeral cause it was in South Africa :( I miss him so much!
