To my dearest family

Some things Iíd like to say

But first of all to let you know

That I arrived OK

Iím writing this from heaven

Where I dwell with God above

Where thereís no more tears of sadness

There is just eternal love

Please do not be unhappy

Just because Iím out of sight

Remember that Iím 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

Itís good to have you back again

You were missed while you were gone

As for your dearest family

Theyíll be here later on

I need you here so badly

As part of my big plan

Thereís so much to that we have to do

To help our mortal man

Then God gave me a list of things

He wished for me to do

And foremost on that list of mine

Is to watch and care for you.

And I will be beside you

Every day and week and year

And when youíre sad Iím standing there

To wipe away the tear

And when you lie in bed at night

The days chores put to flight

God and I are closest to you In the middle of the night

When you think of my life on Earth

And all those loving years

Because youíre only human

They are bound to bring you tears

But do not be afraid to cry

It does relieve the pain

Remember there would be no flowers

Unless there was some rain

I wish that I could tell you

Of all that God has planned

But if I were to tell you

You wouldnít understand

But one thing is for certain

Though my life on Earth is oíer

I am closer to you now

Than I ever was before

And to my very many friends

Trust God knows what is best

Iím still not far away from you

Iím just beyond the crest

There are rocky roads ahead of you

And many hills to climb

But together we can do it

Taking only one day at a time

It was always my philosophy

And Iíd like it for you too

That as you give unto the world

So the world will give to you

If you can help somebody

Whoís in sorrow or in pain

Then you can say to God at night

My day was not in vain

And now I am contented

That my life was worthwhile

Knowing as I passed along the way

I made somebody smile

So if you meet somebody

Who is down or feeling low

Just lend a hand to pick him up

As on the way you go

When you are walking down the street

And youíve got me on your mind

Iím walking in your footsteps

Only half a step behind

And when you feel that gentle breeze

Or the wind upon your face

Thatís me giving you a great big hug

Or just a soft embrace

And when itís time for you to go

From that body to be free

Remember youíre not going

You are coming here to me

And I will always love you

From that land way up above

Iíll be in touch again soon

P.S. God sends his love
