Tales and Art in a Small Scale with a Big Heart

So Flew the Birdie




So flew the birdie

High above

Along with the angels

Far over the clouds

To freedom and delight


She went away

To a place without pain

Or sorrow, ever

Through a golden gate

Into a light so bright


She is now fine

But before she left us

She told us about Jesus

Because she wanted us with her

To the love of Heaven


This poem is dedicated to my Grandmother Laila, who passed away in 2015. I read a Finnish version of this at her funeral.
