The Writer's Voice

The World's Favourite Literary Website

Michael Eugene Chapman

August 26, 1971 - October 17, 1998


Charilette Rai Sweeney

Fall leaves of yellow, brown and red rustled quietly in the breeze

Birds sang their sweet morning song high aloft in the trees

Sunlight sparkled across the treetops brightening the morning sky

Bless this day the Lord hath made and that Michael chose to die


Depression, loneliness, despair, anger, pain and rage

Who could know his torment or the battles that he waged

Now Michael's found the peace he sought it's now our turn to cry

So many questions left unanswered and we are left to wonder why


Gone the light that twinkled in his eyes gone too his boyish grin

Gone forever his sweet smile things we will never see again

Curls of golden brown on white satin softly laid

"Son I'll meet you one day in Heaven," his mother's promise being made


Until angels bring the gift of comfort that only God can send

We must say goodbye to Michael 'til we see him once again
