Another Angel Has Gone Home

I knew him as a tall man who loved his country so.
He wasn’t ashamed to let everyone know.
His heart ached when he thought of one soldier lost.
Not only was he proud of his country but He was proud to be a Christian regardless of the cost.

I am a poet and a writer who pens words of art.
I am not a veteran but I am proud to be just a small part
The part who loves his fellow man as a sister and a brother.
Let Michael’s memory live in our hearts and mind’s like no other.

He was an example that we all can follow.
He was The Tall Texan and now he flies with the angels far past earthly swallows.
He was truly my friend and I will miss him so.
I’m sure his works will still continue to show.

Lord build a special mansion for our missing angel I plea.
Allow him to look over the balcony of heaven and see
We are wearing his tall boots and saluting the American flag still.
Let him see we are still worshiping Jesus and doing God’s will.

When I close my eyes at the end of the day.
Let me see his big smile when I kneel down to pray.
Keep him and all the others in perfect love until
The Word of God has been completed and all prophecy fulfilled.
