A LETTER TO MY FRIEND

If one day you look for me
 and I am not where I should be
Know that I have left for Heaven
That's where I'll be.

If you should come to Heaven 
and not find me
Look beside the living fountain 
That's where  I'll be.

If you  should look beside the fountain 
and not find me
Search beside God's glittering throne
 That's where I'll be.

If I'm not beside His throne
nor sitting on His lap
Follow the path to Jesus' feet 
That's where I'll be

When you find me dear friend
Come sit  beside me among the ones
wearing golden crowns
 For that's where I'll be.
