Winning Poem - Competition no 25: Write a poem from the perspective of a child

Heaven's a Breath Away by * Sassy_Angel *

To start my name is Levi and I'm holding my little brother Saul..

We are alone in the world now.. Everything and everyone we love was bombed.

For weeks I have tried so hard to protect and care for Saul and myself.. Saul is fading fast and Im just behind him holding Saul in my arms.

Heaven's a breath away..

So Angel of Death wrap both in your arms, carry us home. As we close our eyes and take our last breath.

Take us to our family to be reunited with love, no more pain.

We don't fear death now
So we close our eyes and take our last breath together Saul and I

Heaven's just a breath away.
