Letter from Heaven
To my dearest family some things I'd like to say
But first of all to let you know that I arrived today,
I'm writing this from Heaven. Here I shall dwell with God above
Here, there's no more tears of sadness. Here 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 here later on.
I need you here badly, you are part of my plan
There's so much that we have to do to help our mortal man."
God gave me a fist 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 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, 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.
1 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 o'er
I'm closer to you now than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you 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.
I just thought I would post this beautiful poem. My Uncle is going to read it for us at my Dads funeral.
We have decided also to have the song "smile" played as one of the last things my Dad said to Mom and I was "keep on smiling".
I feel so numb at the moment, almost robotic. I don't know how I was expecting to feel really, I am managing to take care of all the organising without crying, which has suprised me. It is last thing at night though and also going to my Moms and not seeing my Dad there that I am finding hard at the moment. The tears flow alot at night and at the moment I am seeing my Dad in his last few days keep flashing back, I so long to have the vision of my healthy Dad in my mind. My friend said it is because it is so raw and soon those visions will appear, I do hope so.
Love to all
