Im sorry for the loss of your uncle. This poem is very strong to me because it is coming from someone so young.

There is a haunting innocence in this poem that because of the age of the writer makes it true. Heaven as described in the poem is a place where all colors are. There is red, blue and gold among others. Red is associated with death in the poem. So naturally, and with an unintentional insight, gold and blue are the best colors because they are not associated with death. They represent the sky and the sea and what is in heaven. Amazing how youth has that touch.

Blue and Gold

Even though you are only 8, this is a very lovely poem. As long as you write what is in your heart you have a poem. Thank you for letting the world and your uncle know the way you felt.
