A Letter from Heaven
To my foster family, some things I'd like
But first of all to let you know, that
I arrived okay.
I'm writing this letter from the Bridge
- Where I now dwell with God above-
Where there are no tears or sadness, only
Please don't be sad because I am out of
Remember that I am with you, every morning,
noon and night.
The other 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...
Its good to have you back again, you were
missed while you were gone...
As for your foster family, they'll be
here later on".
When you think of my life on earth, and
the neglect in my early years,
Because you are only human, they are bound
to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry: it does relieve
Remember there would be no flowers, unless
there was some rain.
God gave me a list of important things,
that he would like for me to do,
And foremost on his special list, was
to watch over and care for you.
And when you lie down and try to sleep,
with the day's chores put to flight,
Remember that God is closest to you, in
the middle of the night.
I wish that I could tell you, everything
that God has planned,
But even if I could tell you, you wouldn't
But one thing is for certain, though my
earthly life is over,
I'm more happy, healthy and content, than
I ever was before.
If you can help another, who is in sorrow
or in pain,
Then you can say to God at night; "My
day was not in vain".
And when you're walking down the street,
with me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps, only a
short trot behind.
There are rocky roads ahead of you, and
many hills to climb,
But a rescuer's heart is big and strong,
just take it one day at a time.
For it is simply God's nature, and I'd
like it for you too,
That as you give to the world, the world
will give to you.
And when your time on earth is up, to
leave your body and be free,
Remember you are not "going", You are
coming up here to me.
