Poem By Desirae Roa

I was only eleven when angels carried
You home to heaven without anyone’s consent
Your voice and your laughter is stuck
In my head forever
The one thing I love to remember is the bedtime
Story you would always read to me while you played
With my hair, you made me feel so safe.
You always smelled of lavender and
Your smile was so contagious.
Those things I will always remember.
Sometimes I close my eyes real tight
And pray I see your Beautiful face
Life without you here is so
Unfair but I try to remember in spirit you'll always be here.

'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.


It was like yesterday you left
And never came home
Something went wrong with your surgery

'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”
