Can angels cry..

As we ring the bell of the greatest home, ever known



Here we are to return an angel so graceful and strong



Such a powerful woman... her advice I'll forever use



She’d always say “Child don’t lose any more weight”



That order however I just may refuse



Walking this short path of life... I’ve seen many things



After every storm the sun eventually beams



After the longest of the longest droughts



We’ve always had roses come spring



After every souls departs another angel is set to rest



Freed of all prior... heartache, pain and distress



I want to say "Thank you", my dear Lord on everyone's behave



Thank you, for all the beautiful memories... we'll forever possess



I will no longer shed tears, because I know her burdens are now at rest



As precious as the day when sunset finally sets



Or that feeling on Christmas... when Santa has fulfilled your request



Today is a housewarming... a celebration of your new home



Although we may feel hopeless, incomplete, sad and alone



There’s no place more grand than my grandmother's new address



There’s no need for house work, cooking or sweat



I hope everything met... your expectations and standards



There's even a garden that pre-seasoned planted



No man could ever protect her… as much as our dear God



No moments are as golden… as the walk through heaven's front yard



Seems like the mind can only make such beautiful notes



When the heart is in pain and aches the most



Lawrence, Gerald, and Erica... all of the should’ve, would’ve, could’ve(s)



Still couldn’t prepare for this close once our father calls us home



There’s no saying NO... or resistance when it’s time for one to go



My dear God please give them hope... when they're backed against the wall



And they're options are low... Give them the strength of one last punch



When life seem to be winning its fight... a bandage for the wounds bleeding inside



Bless them with the gift of guidance when their path is no longer wrote



Grant them a healing to that feeling that only the devil provokes



Continue to bless them in their lives and whichever route they go



Fill the void in their hearts that only a mother would fill



Touch them on the shoulder my lord and let them know you’re real



Supply them a friend when days get lonely and no one is near



Give them the gift of exquisite memory so every little detail is kept well



For when days aren’t as sunny... the thought of her smile keeps them going



Rejoice their spirits and help them find warmth in the cold



I know you wouldn't give... a load they couldn’t hold



Remove those clouds of regret and guilt



Tell them god she’s okay & you’ll take it from here.
