Letter From Heaven


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2010 with permission of the Author.

Hey everybody,
I hope this doesn't reach you too late.
I don't want you to worry,
Because life up here is great.

I can't wait for you to see the beauty of heaven,
But I know it's not your time.
I really miss you guys,
But I know you'll be just fine.

You know I can see you, right?
So please stop shedding tears.
You guys, I'm perfectly fine,
So conquer all your fears.

I'll be watching your every move.
Relax! I won't spill your beans.
But stop all those naughty things you do,
Because you know there's nothing He can't see.

I need you to come here to meet me,
But not if you misbehave,
So please keep God in your heart,
And you'll be safe and saved.

Hey guys, I know you miss me.
It's really hard not to.
But please, please stop grieving,
Because you're making me sad too.

You guys have been a great family,
And I am truly blessed.
You've raised me through my earthly life;
Now God will do the rest.

He's really a great person,
And an even better friend,
So I'm in great hands,
And on Him you can also depend.

Oh boy, I'm getting carried away.
I want to say so many things,
But I really have to go now,
Because today I'm getting my wings.

Bye, you guys; love you forever and a day!

P.S. Be good. I'll be watching!!!

This was an awesome poem. I didn't know my dad too well but on his dying bed I made sure he gave his life to Christ. This seemed so much like something he would say to the family.

I had a stroke on Oct 16, 2012 and I would like to share that God is who he says he is, he will never let us down and I believe with all my heart that he is going to restore me 100 percent back to normal the way it was intended to be. I always keep reminding my self I know Jesus loves me but most
of all God Did Not Make Any Junk

Thank you for the wonderful poem, I lost my wife on 20-06-2014, was madly in love with her, 12 years of marriage, only almighty knows how I passed these 19 days, and almighty will guide me how to pass the rest of my life. She left me with 2 beautiful kids and given me a challenge of fulfilling her duties. She died at the age of 34. And its very difficult when my kids ask when will our mummy come back, and I am left with no answers. Please remember me and my family in your prayers

I lost my dad 12/25/12. I'm still grieving very hard. I miss him so much but this poem sounds a lot like my daddy. It definitely sounds like what he would be saying.

I found this poem very nice and gives me piece of mind. I lost a close friend in a car accident. Her parents committed suicide due to the grieving process her fiancée also committed suicide at least they're at peace together now.

I lost my dad on January 29th 2013. I lost my mom on November 29th 2011. I also lost my brother on October 7th 2010. This poem has spoken to me and I cried when I read it to my children it does make a lot of sense to me. I am having a hard time with losing my brother who died in a weird motorcycle accident and my mom with stage 4 lung cancer and my father with stage 4 lymph node cancer. My god be with me and my children as we get through this time in our life where we lost the only parent and grandparent that they have left in their lives. I have to pick up all the pieces in my life and continue to get on and try to start over fresh. RIP daddy RIP mommy and RIP Mark. Love Stephanie

I would like to say to you my dear Sister in Christ I know how and what you feel. I, too, lost a loved one. Her name was Stella. She had stage 4 cancer of the ovaries. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think and remember her. It will be two years that she passed away on July 1, 2015. Through all this experience God has made me strong. There might be a time when we are going to question things. At this moment we just have to trust God. Two important things to remember: always pray and trust God. Believe me, he knows what he is doing. He has everything under control. I will keep you and your family in prayer. May God richly bless you.

I was so deeply touched by your poem that I posted it online for the victims and families of the Chicago shootings. There are no winners but I thought it may help others in carrying on.

Bless you!

Thank you for the poems and stories. I myself had an abortion when I was 17, I'm 36 now. There is nothing else in my life that I regret more then the abortion. The man that I was involved with was 25. He sold me the nightmare of how he wouldn't help me with the baby, how my parents would kick me out. The same stories as all the dead beat men give. Well the day of the appointment I cancelled it twice. Somehow he managed to convince me to go ahead and do it. Well I will tell you June 17th is the most saddest day of my life. I stopped dating him right away. I couldn't stand looking at him any more. I always think of how life would have been different. Was it a boy or a girl. I have gone to THE LORD for forgiveness, and I know that he forgave me. The guilt is still there and it still kills me. One day my baby and I will meet again. So to all the young ladies that may be considering abortion and may be reading this. You are not alone, there are so many resources out there. Don't do it.

On Jan 28, 2011 my wife and dear beloved friend Rolinda Randle -Dozier suffer a stroke and major bleeding in the brain. We didn't have insurance to cover the operation needed to at least keep her alive so the doctors didn't do much, so she died on Feb 6 2011. When I read this poem I felt deeply it was the words she would say to us and some of us are still missing her. Thanks.

My friend was shot last month when he was collecting money for a car he worked on and this is the SAME exact words he would say.. I was reading it and made me think of him..

My partner of 11 years passed away 6-10-11 after a 3 year illness. It's so hard to live without him, that poem is just what I know he would say to me. It's as hard today as it was the day he was taken from me. I have pictures of him all over my house it helps me to see him every room I go into. miss and love him so much.

I lost a son at the age of seventeen in a car accident and it has been very difficult. The only thing that really helps is knowing that I will see him again. I just can't wait.. I would love to hear how others cope with losses of young sons.

My aunt passed away a year ago, and I imagine that she'd say some of these same things should she be able to let us know.

This is amazing, I love this poem! Two of my pets passed away in a four month period and I can imagine this is what they would like to say to me. Beautiful poem! =)

My aunt recently lost a loved one and is not doing well, she still cannot believe she is gone and this poem reminds me of that loved one because it is something that loved one would say word for word.
