Stairway to Heaven

Stairway to Heaven

A Poem by Macy A. Brown

The day I got the message

My heart split in half.

All the message said was this,


"Dean has been shot in the chest at war and will not be returning home to you"


As I packed up your things,

tears dripped all over the floor.

The concept of you not returning was to much.


But I had to remember,

You took the stairway to heaven and you are watching over me,

Once I die you will come down that stairway and,

we shall meet again.

This reminds me of Carrie Underwood's song "Just A Dream". This was very beautiful and sad. You did a very good job writing it. Keep up the good work.!

good poem but it needs more empathy and feeling. it helps when its actually happened to you. sad poems are tough to fake
