They say that life is fleeting
I know that this is true
I left this world so quickly
with no goodbye to you.

I know how much you miss me
Your tears fall ever light
The pillow where you lay your head
Is wet with them at night.

I know your heart is hurting
The words we left, unsaid.
“I love yous” left unspoken
Are spinning in your head.

The strength that I have carried
That served to make you whole
Remains to make you stronger
Within your grieving soul.

For you see, while you were weeping
An angel came to see me.
She took me by the hand
And led me to a kingdom, in a very distant land.

As I look down from Heaven
And see you standing there
Your heart so ever burdened
With more weight than it can bear.

I long to bring you comfort
I long to give you peace
I long to hold you closely
Cause all your tears to cease.

The joy I’ve found in Heaven
Goes far beyond compare
The love that’s so elusive
Can be found everywhere.

The light is softly shining
There’s no storm clouds here or rain
There’s no teardrops found in Heaven
There’s no suffering, there’s no pain.

You needn’t be so troubled
Stay close to God and pray
For someday we’ll be together
One bright and glorious day.

So Dear Mother, you shouldn’t question.
My dear Mother, you need not cry.
I’ve gone to be with Jesus
I really didn’t die.
