A Message from Heaven
Perhaps you aren’t ready yet
to have to say good-bye...
Perhaps you’ve thought of things
you wish you’d said
well, so have I.
For one thing, I’d have told you
not to worry about me...
I’m with the Lord in Heaven now
you knew that’s where I’d be.
I’m sorry that you’re feeling sad
for I’m so happy now...
I’ve asked the Lord to ease the hurt
and comfort you somehow.
It’s hard at the beginning
but I know you’ll make it through...
I hope it helps to know that
I’ll be waiting here for you.
