Her Spirit Soared Away To Look Down… From Above


Her Spirit Soared Away To Look Down … From Above

Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny …. 2013

 

Her hair fanned about her face, so pretty it was

 

The wind blew strands up from the ground

 

The ground, she laid upon

 

The sunshine made her pretty face… glow

 

She had pink lips, eyes of blue

 

Her eyebrows were black as her hair

 

She stared off into space, she saw something I couldn’t see

 

It must not have been bad… she had a half-smile on her face

 

What happened to her was bad… though, she smiled

 

She had been hit, thrown to the ground by the force

 

Her spirit floated away into the air

 

It looked down at the woman who stood there in shock

 

The woman shed tears for an unknown stranger

 

As her heart felt such intense grief

 

A waste of life… lying here, before her

 

Someone had hit this girl, kept on driving

 

Never stopping to help, or to see

 

What they had done… a coward they was

 

She stood there, crying for all bad things like this in the world

 

As she took out her cellphone, dialed for help

 

She looked down to the girl… knew she’d gone away

 

All the help in the world couldn’t help her now

 

She wasn’t in this world anymore, her life was gone

 

Though… her spirit had soared away to look down… from above

 

As she waited, she felt a warm air caress her face like a gentle kiss

 

She felt what felt like arms wrap around, hug her

 

She thought she heard a whisper in her ear, “Thank-you… everything’s going to be alright”

 

She looked at the girl’s face again… she thought she saw a smile

 

Blinking her eyes, looking again to find it still there

 

She felt her own lips smile… and a sense of peace in her heart

 

Grief, pain of any kind can be devastating

 

Bring us to our knees… make it almost impossible to recover from

 

Somehow, though… I know… everything will eventually be alright, again
