My Angels

Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

No tears for me my angels 

As they lay me down to rest 

Don't be sad for me my angels 

For our lives were truly blessed 


The time we had together 

Though it will never seem that long

The time we had together 

Will help you to stay strong 


I taught you to be pure of heart 

To always stand up proud 

I taught you to think smart 

Be individual, dont follow the crowd 


The lessons that I taught you

The future that we shaped 

The lessons that I gave you 

Were to help you seal your fate 


To grow up to be happy 

Sassy, wild and strong 

To grow up to be free 

In a place where you belong 


This my angels I leave you 

My final parting gift 

These truths we always knew

Into afterlife I'm set adrift

  • Comment from author about the poem: I finished this during my lunch break in work....I look right onto an express way and I looked up to see a funeral car pass by. Anyway....we all hope one day....long from now we leave behind a well adjusted generation
