I don’t want you to grow angel wings
even though
I know
you’d be the most beautiful angel out there

You’d grow the biggest wings to give others shelter
even though
they’ll probably be too heavy
for your back
to carry

But your spine is so strong
and your heart too willing
to shelter others from the storm
to give in

And even though you’ll be up there
you’ll keep a close eye on us down here
because that’s the kind of angel you’ll be
thoughtful and caring
always managing
to be the best you can be

– I love you grandma, please stay human for a little longer
