For Danny

For Danny

A Poem by Katarzyna Slade

This is a poem I wrote for my brothers funeral.

You are my distant angel,
Cover me from the storm.
Hold my hand through the dark,
And guide me when I'm wrong.
You taught me to be grown,
To shine as i am,
And always hold my own.
You were a shoulder,
Through the hard times,
Your strength becomes my light,
Now that you are gone.
And now my sleeping brother,
The pearly gates await.
In heaven now my Danny,
Is where you belong.
Parting is heartbreaking,
It's so terribly tragic.
Know that you have touched us all,
We shall always feel your magic.
I promise to always remember you,
For your love of cheesy music, 
And your dodgy dance moves.
Even though it hurts so much
It brings me peace and comfort,
To know how many lives you've touched.
And now it's time to say goodbye,
A mourning tear falls from my eye.
I hope that you sleep in peace,
For you'r kind heart,
In my memories shall never leave.

I'm sure he would've been happy to know you remembered him not just as a name but as a person as well. A beautiful tribute indeed

A beautiful tribute.

True beauty comes from a heart that takes pain and molds it into words such as these. Writing like this is truly inspiring.

Anything that comes from your heart does your brother justice, for that is where we all reside in one way or another.. in the heart. I think this poem is a beautiful sentiment and tributes well... as it really does speak for so many... and is done so well. Thanks for sharing this.

Death is indeed tragic and untimely. This tribute really touched me; painted your brother with brightness, heartiness and all the recognition he deserved. I don't know him but heck- what a good piece. Keep writing my friend- you got IT.

Heartbreaking, yet infused with abiding hope.
Your love and longing for your brother is painfully evident, Katie; you tenderly portray him as having been unique, endearing and full of life.
This piece is sweet tribute to Danny's memory.
May God receive him with a smile.
