Letter from Heaven

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.

There’s so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.”

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was 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 those loving 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.
If I were to tell you, 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 I 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.

It was always my philosophy and I’d like it for you too;
That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who’s 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 was 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 a hand to pick him 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….from that body to be free.
Remember you’re not going…..you’re coming here to Me.

  1. I am so sorry to hear about your son. As a mother of four kids, I cannot imagine what you are going through right now. I was diagnosed with bipolar, but after a year, I am still having a hard time accepting it.

    Your son is in my prayers.

  2. That was one of the most beautiful poems i have ever read. I am so very sorry for your loss. I lost my best friend in the world to suicide in October of 2005. My thoughts and prayers are with you and our loved ones in Heaven
    God Bless

  3. That was a beautiful poem. I lost my daughter June 29th and I take it one day at a time. Sometimes thinking that I don’t want to make it another day. But I have 2 of her kids and I have to go on for them. My thoughts and prayers are with anyone out there that has lost a loved one.

  4. I’m so sorry, Teresa. It is hard to consciously decide to keep going. We have to remember that there are people in this world who would be as devastated at our death as we are for the child we lost.

    Take care of yourself.

  5. Pls Be strong, its a time to live ur life.
    Always Remember ‘Life is a Game and We are the Player’s, so Win this Game…

  6. Thank you, Kanu.

    Some days I can barely manage, other days slip by almost normally. I know it will be a while before I settle into the new normality of life.
