View Full Version : I Received My Wings Today

I wrote this yesterday for Tish after reading that Skittles had passed. But thought I'd share here too. My writing is often more fluent after a sad event for some reason - eventually I may put them all in book.

I Received My Wings Today

I heard we all get wings they come at different times.
Some receive when they are young, others wait in line.
I felt mine were coming to me and was waiting for a sign.
I was asked what I wanted I knew it was my time.
So I asked if I could have them, those special wings of mine.
I heard her say; of course you can, I know it is your time.
And so she helped me into them, they really are divine.
I hope that you can see them, these gorgeous wings of mine.

If you can write like that then you should put them into a book. Many people would enjoy reading these

very well done! I think you should try to make a collection of poems like these and send them of to few publishers. They might give you an idea about how to go on from here... I might pinch this one (only if you don't mind, thou) for a headstone when my Daisie passes - she is WW and well over 3 years old, although still full of beans :)

PS: Keep writing!

Isn't it wonderful the way these dear sweet silly little things find their way into our lives and into our hearts. They ask so little from us and they give back nothing but love.
