Her Spirit Soared Away To Look Down... From Above

Her Spirit Soared Away To Look Down ... From Above
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

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
