Timely -Return Gift

Oh what a lovely gift
Esker left for thee

It's too late now to thank him
as somewhere he must be soaring
in the wilderness of time
nearer eternity

at times I often feel
we must attend to chores instantly
but then time tells us
silently
wait and see
may it not yet be really
timely

But alas none know
what is in store
beyond a wink
and just no more

this piece applies to Jess
and Moonman also

Good poem about remembering people who've soared up to Heaven. They're in a lot better place here than on Earth.
You have some nice rhymes, like placidly, timely, etc. I didn't get to know those who died. My condolences to their friends here and their family.

The Poetry of the Earth is never Dead. John Keats.

Ma;am this is really doubtful
I died in 1977
was lying on the rivers bank
then after a while was pulled out alive
I saw no heaven

but was then convinced
this is the only GARDEN
where Adam could have ever met Eden
and produced a futuristic
heaven
so be it amen
