 I'm right here in your Heart

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see. If the sun should rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today, While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say, I know how much you love me, As much as I love you. And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too;

But when tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand. That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand, and said my place was ready in Heaven far above, and that I'd have to leave behind, All those things I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away, A tear fell from my eye, For all of life, I'd always thought, I didn't want to die. I had so much to live for, So much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, I thought of all the love we shared, And all the fun we had. If I could relive yesterday, Just even for a while, I'd say good-bye and kiss you, and maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized, that that could never be, For emptiness and memories, Would take the place of me.

When I thought of Worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you, and when I did, My heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through Heaven's gates, I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled at me, From his great golden throne, He said, "This is eternity, and all I've promised you. Today your life on Earth is past, But here it starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow, But today will always last, and since each day's the same day, There's no longing for the past. But you have been so faithful, So trusting and so true, Though there were times you did some things, you know you shouldn't do.

But you have been forgiven, And now at last you're free, So won't you take my hand And share My life with Me?" So when tomorrow starts without me, Don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me,
I'm right here in your Heart



No farewell words were spoken, no time to say good bye,

You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why... 






If We Could Bring You Back Again

 If we could bring you back again, For one more hour or day, We’d express all our unspoken love; We’d have countless things to say.


 If we could bring you back again, We’d say we treasured you, And that your presence in our lives Meant more than we ever knew.


 If we could bring you back again, To tell you what we should, You’d know how much we miss you now, And if we could, we would.







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 okay. I'm writing this from heaven. Here I 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're part of my 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 of you and many hills to climb; But together we can do it by 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, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain; Then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain." And now I am contented...that my life was worthwhile. Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low; Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go. 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 coming here to me.

 A Note From Heaven

If I could write from Heaven, this is what I'd say, Please dont miss me too much, I'm with you throughout your day, You may not see or hear me, but if your quiet and still, You may just feel my presence; because, in Heaven there is free will.


Dont worry for the day, it will come and go as planned, Enjoy each moment given, keep worry from your hand. Keep sorrow to a minimum; For if Heaven you could see, You'd know I'm safe and happy, i did not cease to be. Moments in time are brief, until we'll be together again, as Eternity lasts forever, our lives, they have no end.







"I'll lend you for a little time A child of mine," He said, "For you to love the while he lives And mourn for when he is dead.

"It may be six or seven years, Or twenty-two or three; But will you, 'til I call him back Take care of him for me?

"He'll bring his charms to gladden you And shall his stay be brief, You'll have his lovely memories As solace for your grief.

"I cannot promise he will stay, Since all from earth return; But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn.

"I've looked the wide world over In search for teachers true, And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes I have selected you.

"Now will you give him all your love Nor think the labor vain; Nor hate Me when I come to call And take him back again?"

I fancied that I heard them say, "Dear Lord, Thy Will be done! For all the joy Thy child shall bring, The risk of grief we'll run.

"We'll shelter him with tenderness, We'll love him while we may, And for the happiness we've known Forever grateful stay.

"But shall the Angels call for him Much sooner then we've planned, We'll brave the bitter grief that comes And try to understand."
