"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 I am with you every morning, noon, and night.
The day I had to leave you; my life on earth was through.
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
