Aunt Death Poem

Dedicated to My Aunt (AKA my Mom) She was the one who raised me.

God Took Another Angel Home

© Christina Wallace
You laid there in that hospital
bed, you tried so hard to hold on.

God was calling you home. He needed
another angel to help poor out the rain.

Tears have fallen, hearts where shattered,
but it was time for you to fly home.

Your loved ones came to say their last goodbyes, to tell you they loved you, and that you will be forever missed.

As your heart beat stopped, and your eyes slowly closed,
God took another angel home.

  • Chelsea, that exact thing just happened this past weekend. My nana was in the hospital and all of her grandchildren and children were flying in to see her and say goodbye to her one last time. And the last person got there and seconds later she took her last breath.

  • Gina, my exact story. My mother was my everything and she fought the good fight. She wouldn't have left us if she had anything to say about it. God called her home and just like you Gina half of me went with her. She's been gone 6 months this week and I still don't know how to go on. Prayer.

  • This reached right into my heart. I can really relate to this as my Aunty died after a good fight with cancer. We were really close and there's part of me missing, a part of me that she took with her.

  • This touched me deeply. I lost my brother to abuse when I was only 7. He died way before his time at the age of 9. I think of him every day watching over me and my daughter, and can sense him when times are hard, and when I'm missing him the most.

She was the last one of her family. and she told me that one day she would be with her parents and her sisters and brothers. On Oct 28, 2011 her body was letting down. and God saw her pain and called her home. and I know that she is at peace...sleep on auntie and get your rest.

  • Today I lost my Aunt Sylvia to Cancer. She'd been hospitalized for the last few months. She too waited till my Uncle And Mom got there. My mom reassured her that it was ok to let go & that her yard work was done and her house was clean. Also to go Home where she'll never feel anymore pain, after My Mom said that My Aunt Sylvia took her last breath and went home to GOD>

  • This is amazing poem and I can relate soooo much. When I was 10 my aunt died and she and I were very close but when she passed away I had nobody to truly talk to.... the only thing I have left was a box with some of her favorite things that she loved.. <3
