To: Raya

She saw a cloud above her
but the ground was not below
She saw a man
in front of gates
and asked
"is this where angels go?"

He nodded to the little one
and smiled just the same
He opened up his arms to her
and asked her
what's your name?"

Her eyes shed but a single tear
as she turned to look once more
"My name Raya, sir,"
she said
"Is God behind that door?"

"Indeed he is, little one,"
came the soft and sad reply
She took her final steps
toward heaven
and whispered down below"
