For Patti (LaBELLE, my favorite singer)

by Denisiab

over those who told you 
not to sing so loud, 
so powerful,
I saw you flying.
over the broken hearts,
misunderstandings and separations
with friends and family,
I saw you flying.
over the losses of loved ones
who heard your "I'll see you laters"
if by chance
and those who missed your good-bye,
I still see you flying.
with the Divas here and gone
and those who will be here,
I see you flying.
All this I see
everytime I hear and see you sing.
I always knew you could fly
over the rainbow,
over this atmosphere,
and over heaven.
Your name means beautiful
and you are an angel, too.
