Wings

on

Today you grew wings
and flew to Heaven;
Selfishly I wanted to pull you back to Earth, the thought of being without you
too much to bear.
From up above I saw you smile,
and I knew your peace
was all that mattered;
that’s how love works,
sometimes I must come second;
so I dug deep inside,
remembering the many times
you put my needs above your own;
and in that moment,
I let you go
knowing you will never really be gone.
