Letter From Heaven

To my dearest family some things I'd like to say
But first of all I want you to know that I arrived today,
I'm writing this from Heaven - here I dwell with God above.
Here, there are no more tears of sadness - there is just Eternal Love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight
Remember that I am 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,
As for your dearest family, they'll be with us later on.
I need you here so badly, you are part of my great plan
There's so much that we have to do to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do
and foremost on the list was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's 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, they are 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 all that God has planned
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand
 But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over
I'm closer to you now than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead and many hills to climb
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.

When you're walking down the street and you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go ... from that body to be free
Remember you're not going ... you're just coming here to me.
