Dear Dad in Heaven,
I sit here and I ponder how very much
I'd like to talk to you today
There are so many things
That we didn't get to say
I know how much you care for me
And how much I care for you,
And each time that I think of you
I know you'll miss me too.
An angel came and called your name
And took you by the hand and said
Your place was ready in Heaven, far above . . .
And you had to leave behind, all those you dearly loved
You had so much to live for, you had so much to do . . .
It still seems impossible, that God was taking you.
And though your life on earth is past, in Heaven it starts anew
You'll live for all eternity, just as God has promised you.
And though you've walked through Heaven's gate
We are never far apart
For every time that I think of you,
You're right here, deep with-in my heart.
