Where Is Heaven
Where is Heaven I'd like to know,
Is it just like the T.V. shows?
If I go there will I be able to see
All the other children just like me?
Is there a sea of flowers blooming in the sky?
Is there a special place just for you and I?
Is it really true that angels have wings?
Will I see Grandpa fixing yo-yo strings?
Will there be birds and puppies all around?
Will there be grass on the cloudy ground?
Will there be ice cream and candy to eat?
Will I walk with tigers purring at my feet?
I really want to know that I won't be alone,
If I were, I'd rather stay at home.
I really want to see Grandma once more,
if i were sure I'd step right through that door.
Please Mommy or Daddy tell me what it's like.
Will I be able to ride my brand new bike?
Will my friends and family know just where I am?
And can I still have peanut butter and jam?
Answer my questions, where is heaven now?
Quietly I'll listen so you can tell me how.
I want to hear the answers as I look upon your face.
I will sit and listen to your voice with a gentle grace.
Yes my dear sweet child I will gladly reply.
Heaven may not be way up in the sky.
But I do know this it's buried in our hearts
And I know it's where we all got our start.
Heaven is a special place unlike any other,
It is a place you will see your daddy and your Mother.
You will never be afraid or miss a single thing,
You will dress the very best and wear a Halo Ring.
Only good and kindness and perfection all about
Heaven is the place to be, this I have no doubt.
So don't waste your time on fear of going there.
Everything is gentle even the grizzly bear.
You'll be able to do anything you like
Play and sing and yes my dear even ride your bike.
Whatever you think of will be within your reach
So remember all the rules that we tried to teach.
The road to Heaven takes a lot of love and caring,
It takes practice of faith and a turn at sharing.
You really must believe from the bottom of your heart,
Only then will God place you in His Golden Cart.
He'll give you all you needs and hold you oh so close.
You'll be His Precious Child, He will love you the most.
So learn from life's lessons put to you each day,
Always and forever, don't forget to pray.
