Please come back
just for a moment
if Jesus will allow you
to leave heaven
because I have one more 
thing to say to you
my love.

You knew I was not perfect,
but that my soul 
was not evil.
You waded into 
the muddy waters
of my mind and soul
without fear 
to light
my life with love.

I need you to come back
for a moment,
but come at night
so no one else can see you
otherwise you might scare them.

I need to say thank you
to you my dear Patty
for loving me so deeply
If Jesus will allow you
to come to see me 
just for a moment
once again.
