Poem "A letter from Heaven"

Shelena - posted on 09/02/2009 ( 23 moms have responded )




To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say

But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from heaven, here I dwell with God above

Here, there's no more tears of sadness; Here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight;

Remember that I am 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."

"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 badly, you are part of my plan,

There's so much that we have to do to help out mortal man."

God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do

And foremost on my list is to watch and care for you.

And when you lie in bed at night; the day's 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 of those missed years,

Because you are 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 all that God has planned,

But if I were to tell you that, you wouldn't understand.

But one thing is for certain though, my life on earth is o'er,

I'm closer to you now than ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb,

But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.

There is a very wise philosophy and I'd like to share it with you,

That as you give unto the world, the world will give unto you.

If you can help somebody who is in sorrow and pain,

Then you can say to God at night, "My day was not in vain.

And now I am contented, that my life is worthwhile,

Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile."

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,

Just lend them your hand to pick them up, as on your way you go.

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 it's time for you to go, for that body to be free,,

Remember you're not going, You're coming here to me.

This is a poem that was given to me right after I lost Curtis. I carry this with me in my wallet and look at it often. It helps for some reason. I have always cherished the words. Maybe it will help someone else.

Hello...I was looking for some kind of poem to use for my nephews memorial today. It's nineteen years yet it still can seem like yesterday. He was three when he went to heaven. Thank you for such a whole hearted poem. God bless you and your loved ones, on earth and in heaven. Until we all meet again in heaven.

This is a heart felt poem. My little son Ricky passed away 29 years ago. I often write letters to him in my journal and wonder what he might say back to me. This was sweet and filled a void i've had for some time. We are not supposed to bury our children, but please know and trust our Lord they are in good care. I also pray this little poem can help other mother's and families understand our little one is watching over us !!!

This is one of the most beautiful poems I think I've read. I have lost 2 children, My daughter, my first one was stillborn n 1980 and my only son at 20yrs in 2004 and this poem fits both cases.
