Together in Heaven
My dearest friends and family there are things I’d like to say;
first of all I’ll let you know I arrived here safe today.
I am sending word from heaven where I’ll dwell with God above;
there are no tears and sorrow, there is only peace and love.
I had to leave you as my time on earth was through;
loved ones waited for me just as I will wait for you.
I missed them and I am happy to be with them again;
I want you all to know I’m here with family and friends.
God gave me many tasks he wishes me to do;
high up on the list is watching over all of you.
Don’t think I do not hear you because I am out of sight;
remember I am with you every morning, noon and night.
When your load gets heavy don’t cry too many tears;
then I can whisper to you what you will need to hear.
I always will be near you to guide you through each day;
remember when you need me I am just a thought away.
Our love will build a highway and our memories a lane;
I’ll walk right down from heaven and be with you again.
Remember when you miss me and I am on your mind;
although you will not see me I’ll be just a step behind.
When your life on earth is over and your soul is finally free;
believe me when I tell you, you’ll be coming home with me.
