    Poem Commentary

    Written for Vininie , a special young man who died too young.

    Heaven's Tide

    (For Vinnie)

    I spoke to God this morning
    He said I should be brave
    God told me that you would return
    As sure as the ocean's wave

    He did not have to tell me
    God did not have to say
    You'd not be back anytime soon,
    Surely, not today.

    God reassured me that you
    Would be seated next to him
    The chance of you losing your way
    Would be rather slim.


    And with that promise
    We entrust your soul to Him
    Till with the Holy Tide of Heaven
    You roll back home again.
