This is a message I believe many of us wish someone had left behind for us. Something to hold on to. Something to keep close to our hearts, especially on the bad days. We love deeply and when we lose someone who means so much, means the world to us, we’re desperate for something to ease the pain.
I intend to write this for my son’s final journey entry. I started a journal for him on his very first day in school. I’ve written in it for 13 years so far. And when the time comes, he will have it and hopefully it will bring him comfort. Please feel free to copy for someone you love. I guarantee they will appreciate it.
A Letter from Heaven
When tomorrow starts without me
And I’m not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
The way you did today;
While thinking of many things
We didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me
As much as I love you;
And each time that you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too.
When tomorrow starts without me,
Don’t think we’re far apart
For every time you think of me,
I’m right here in your heart.
