There's a poem in his pocket that he will never see
As I watch here from the outside, trying to believe
He chose to rise to heaven, leaving me behind
He left without much warning, heavy on my mind
Now that Mother's joined him in the home up above
Again I feel the loss, one less kiss, one less hug
Uncle Sonny and Mother should have much to talk about
With the poem in his pocket and her sunflower there's no doubt
She could read him the poem written many years ago
And he could scatter seeds, ease my sense of woe
Though we knew time was passing, often weaker each new day
We thought the possibilities must still be months away
Gathered around her bedside she pleaded "Take me home"
And with a single prayer her wishes were made known

Lord let me leave them
as gently as I can
and give them the courage
strength to understand

Work like money doesn't matter, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching...

Pulls at the heart. Poignantly written, and well.

It aint the sweet smell of success wafting below your nose...
