Balloon's fill the sky today,
For an angel who just turned 8.
Because we cannot give him presents,
Or watch him eat his cake.
Darrel took flight last year,
As his battle with cancer ended.
Wishing he was here today,
So everything can be mended.
He celebrates up in Heaven,
With all his angel friends.
Eating cake and opening presents,
Hoping the day will never end.
But his family is down here wishing,
That he could be here today.
As it just isn't a birthday,
Without the little boy turning 8.
No watching the glee in his eyes,
As the candles flicker so bright.
Wishing everyone would hurry up,
So he can blow out the light.
So we celebrate on Earth today,
For an angel who is in Heaven.
Never forgetting the angel in Heaven,
Will forever be 7.
Written in Memory of Darrel for his 8th Birthday.
