    Da dream dat i had of an angel that could fly,
    Is when my grandmother was still alive,
    She always made me laugh and smile,
    And to see her leave, was a sad goodbye,
    She was prosperous, special, and unique,
    God made her perfect, she was strong but neva weak,
    I knew that dis wasn't my only time,
    2 see dat an angel could really fly,
    She was like a bird, or a bluejay,
    That always looked down upon me,
    Her face was round, her smile was big,
    She was da one that i called on since i was little,
    I can see her talkin, sayin i'll always be here,
    I wish i can see her one more time,
    And hug and share a few more tears,
    Months are turning into years,
    I can visualize how her life was,
    She lived a good life, and in that case,
    She's neva forgotten, i miss her sweet face,
    Someone who is neva replaced,
    But she's just an angel,
    Who's gone up to heaven,
    I neva knew she could fly,
    So high beyond da misting blue clouds.

    R.I.P. Grandma

    Oh yes my sister you are so right, it is a blessing when you can connect to the other side. Death is life, and life is death, the angels never sleep, God bless you.

    Makes me think of the Folk Tale...

    Reminds me of the African American Folk tale that tells of the People who could Fly...if you have small children, I highly reccomend it, it has a deep and meaningful message in it. And I saw it in this piece/peace today...Say on my beautiful sister!

    Blessings On Ya House!
