As I sit in heaven

and watch over 

you every day

I try to let you

know with signs

I never went away.

I hear you when 

you're laughing,

And watch you

when you sleep

I even place

my arms around you,

To calm you

as you weep.

I see you wish

the days away,

Begging to have

me home.

So I try to send

you signs

So you know you're

not alone.

Don't feel guilty that

you have

life that was denied

to me.

Heaven is truly beautiful,

Just you wait and see

So live your life, be free

and know with

every breath you take

You'll be taking one 

for me.
