A Letter From Heaven

To my dearest family some things I’d like to say,
But first of all to let you know I arrived here ok.
I’m writing to you from heaven where I dwell with god above,
Where there are no more tears or sadness, there is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I’m out of sight,
Remember that I’m with you every morning, noon, and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and he said, I welcome you.
It’s good to have you back again you were missed while you were gone,
And as for your dearest family they’ll be here later on.

I need you here so badly, as part of my big plan,
There is so much we have to do to help our mortal man.
Then god gave me a list of things he wished me to do,
And foremost on that list of mine, is to watch and care for you.
And I will be beside you every day, and week, and year
And when you’re sad I’m standing there to wipe away that tear
And when you lay in bed at night, the days chores put to flight,
God and I are closest to you in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth and all those loving years,
Because you are only human there bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry it does relieve the pain,
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you of all that god has planned,
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn’t understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over
I am closer to you now than I ever was before.

And to my dearest friend’s, trust god for he knows best,
I’m still not far away from you, I’m just beyond the crest.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you, and many hills to climb,
But together we can do it taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I’d like it for you too
That as you give unto the world so the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who’s in sorrow or in pain,
Then you can say to god at night my day was not in vain.

And now I am contented that my life it was worthwhile,
Knowing that as I passed along the way that I made someone smile.
So if you meet somebody that is down and feeling low,
Just lend a hand to pick them up as on your way you go.
When you are walking down the street and you’ve got me on your mind,
Im walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind.
And when you feel that gentle breeze, or the wind upon your face,
That’s me giving you a great big hug, or just a soft embrace.
And when its time for you to go, from that body to be free,
Remember you’re not going. You are coming home to me!
