The Night Angel - written by my niece


Recommended Posts

My niece, Jayme, read this poem she created for my grandfather's funeral service for speakers. The vibe of the verses puts the picture in perspective for me. Hopefully this brings some memories, faith, or hope to any soul out there who needs some grief lifted off their shoulders.

The Night Angel

I look up to the midnight sky

the golden stars breaking through

there is a pair of snowy white wings

which are owned particularly by you

My eyelids flutter to the darkness

the memories sketching in my mind

it is the sight of you in my dreams

the treasure I wanted to find

I pray my wish will come true

we can grasp one another's hand

the two of us are united together

living forever in this holy land
