Letter from Heaven... To my dearest family, some things Id like to say But first of all, to let you know that I arrived okay, Im writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above. Please do not be unhappy just because Im out of sight. Remember that Im 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. And when youre walking down the street And when youve got me on your mind, Im walking in your footsteps only half a step behind. And when its time for you to go, from that body to be free, Remember youre not going...you are coming here to me.
