It amazed me that such a little child could write so beautifully.It's so amazing and yet so sad.His poems really touched me to the core of my soul.Mattie died a few years back.When I first read this book I wasn't aware of that fact.His poems made me cry and my tears fell like rain when I learnt of his death.
He knew that he was going to die sooner if not later and spoke of going to Heaven and that he'll be with his big brother Jamie once more.A very brave boy,Mattie was.May his beautiful soul re

Mattie once again captures the human spirit. This little boy may not have lived for a long time but he did understand the meaning of being alive. My favourite poem in this collection is "I AM". It is a beautiful and moving tribute to life. May Mattie's words live forever in our hearts and minds.

I believe Mattie was an angel sent to earth to warm the hearts of all God's children. I'm so glad I was privileged to see him on television and hear him recite his own prose and poetry. His voice is still with me when I read his books, and it helps me know how he intended his work to be expressed. What a blessing!
