Letter From Heaven

 To my dearest family,
Some things I would like to say,
But first of all, to let you know
That I arrived ok.

I’m writing this from Heaven
Where I dwell with God above,
here there’s no more tears or sadness
There is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy
Just because I’m out of sight.
Remember that I’m with you
Every morning, noon, and night.

That day that 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.

It’s good to have you back again
You were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest; family
They’ll be here later on.

I need you here so badly
As part of my big plan.
There’s so much 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 you’re sad,
I’m standing there to wipe away the tears.

And when you lie in bed at night
The days chore 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 you’re only human
They’re 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 would not understand.

And to my many friends trust,
God knows what it best.
I’m still not very far away from you
I’m just beyond the crest.

And now I am contented that my life,
It was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along the way
I made someone smile.

When you’re walking down the street
And you’ve got me on your mind,
I’m walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind.

And when you feel that gentle breeze
Or the wind upon your face,
That’s me giving you a great big hug
Or just a soft embrace.

And when it’s time for you to go
From that body to be free,
Remember, you’re not going,
You are coming here to me.

And I will always love you
from that land way up above.
I’ll be in touch again soon,

P.S. GOD SENDS HIS LOVE!

  1. Letter From Heaven is a wonderful, refreshing piece of poetry and it tells us unmistakably about God’s love for His children. God really wants all of us to approach His Throne of Grace and accept Jesus’ offer of eternal life through His selfless scrifice on Calvary.

    In Christ,

  12. What a beautiful poem. I can’t thank my sister-in-law, Becky, enough for sending it to me. It felt like my mom’s writing. This will be our first Mother’s Day without her. We always made such a fuss over Mother’s Day as well as Father’s Day. I think of them both together now, in Heaven, with my sister and all of mom and dad’s family that has passed. This came to me at what seemed like the perfect moment today. I will save this or hopefully once I’m employed again, I hope I can have it printed with their photos. Such a lovely poem, I look forward to reading more. Thank you for writing such beautiful poetry.

    Dear Terri Reply:

    I have also lost my 17 year old son. 2003 my whole world feel apart. I read a poem something like it. And I was my son letting me know he was okay. Today I read this one, and once again, I am reminded that my son is okay. Little things like these have been happening since 2003, when my dearly loved first born died in my arms. As I closed his eyes I said God Bless You. and I know he surly did indeed. You will always miss your son, it doesn’t get any easier, we just find new ways to deal with it. Email anytime. bdaddysprincess@aol.com I’m truly sorry for your lost! Hugs Sandra

  21. This week has been a hard week for me. I lost an uncle, father of my dearest friend and a best friend. This poem got me through the hard and difficult days. I also sent it to all my family and friends, who were struggling with letting go. We all learned an important lesson.. Let go and let God!
