I hope you can fly,
in heaven every angel can.

Once I remembered you in a time
when you were by my side
happy and a glow.

I remember the times
when I could kiss your cheeks,
smell your hair,
but the time came for goodbyes,
the angels took you by surprise.

My heart broke after our goodbyes,
heaven took my mother
and my tears followed.

No time or wish can bring back
what heaven took.
For death never gives back
what he took.
