Poem By Desirae Roa

It was like yesterday you left
And never came home
Something went wrong with your surgery
You had a massive stroke during operation
We all hoped and prayed for your recovery
We were heard, but never answered
Because God already had chosen you to live on eternally
The pain I felt was as if I had been full of
Lighter fluid and set on fire internally.
December 16,2004
God called you and this time you didn't fight
You looked up and seen the shining light
And you knew it was time to rest
Papa, it was all for the best.

Grandpa Richard

'That Day'

“That day”
I never knew cancer would take you,
I ask “why? Why do bad things happen to good people? ”
That day I realized the good in bad, cancer set you free.


I was only eleven when angels carried
You home to heaven without anyone’s consent
Your voice and your laughter is stuck

'Cold Day'

“Cold day”
The day you stopped smiling was incredibly cold
Because that day was the day you stopped growing old.
Your curly thin blonde hair stopped growing

'Always Wondered'

“Always Wondered”
My daddy was kidnapped by addiction
He loved his abductor more than me.
I always wondered if I was being punished

'Guardian Angel'

“Our Guardian angel”
God spoke to you that day; he grabbed your hand and took you away.
He needed a pure heart to create an angel.
He whispered in your ear and said “Jerry it’s time to come home”
