Over the Rainbow

Mielita, you're gentle and sweet
To be with you, is such a treat
You're a loving mother
A caring friend
You have a heart of gold

A heart as big as Mars

An Angel

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

This morning you were fine 
Lovely and divine
But now you’ve gone
To where I cannot follow
And my heart has filled with such sweet sorrow
Now you cannot suffer
No pain or any other
I know that this is best
Now you can rest
Alone no more
In heaven at last
