Angel in Heaven (dedicated to Glen Bate)

It’s a long road we travel.

You were left behind.

Perhaps I will see you again, in heaven.

A little angel for ever more.

When we first met.

I captured your heart.

Caught me by surprise.

So long ago it seems.

Your boyish looks.

Oversized army coat.

Shaggy, ruffled, sandy hair.

Eyes that smiled only for me.

Sexual discoveries, I am your “honey child”.

So delightful but short lived, why?

We were so very young.

I stopped loving you, that’s all.

And now you are no more.

Why couldn’t I protect you.

Now only a memory.

Yes, I will see you again in heaven.

A little angel forevermore.
