The Balloon

Can a green balloon reach to heaven?
                            No, but It will have to do.

I heard of a pink balloon in England once
                            that joined a separate two.

That balloon flew with precision and grace
                            to an Angel, transformed to friend.

My green balloon was hesitantly released
                            with a hope that your hearts can mend.

In lieu of holding your sweet young boy
                            we watched from from the ground as they flew 

With resolute spirit and tears in our eyes
                            we'll start each tomorrow anew.
