God Gave You Wings


God too you too soon,
Some might say,
You were here all my life,
And one day you were taken away.
***
But I smile because,
Although God took you home,
I know when he greeted,
He gave you wings to fly.
***
You were my hero,
A man with the knowledge,
The source of my wisdom,
Someone I could turn to.
***
Now when I hear the gulls,
Or see the west coast sky,
I’ll know you are there,
Soaring amongst the clouds.
***
God gave you to the earth,
His gift to everyone in your life,
And each day from now,
I will be thankful to him and to you.
***
I know I have to say goodbye,
But this isn’t the end,
It was just your time,
And I will see you again.
