A Letter From Heaven

Mommy, I'm sending you a message
By someone who can understand
I asked God to lay it on her heart
To bring it to your hands
For me you've cried a thousand tears
And colored your life deep blue
But I always paint you rainbows
To bring a smile for you
Mommy, I heard your prayers for me
And I have felt you mourn
I knew that you loved me
Before I was even born
And I watch you pass by room
With tears in your beautiful eyes
Dreaming of what could have been
Of laughs and rock-a-byes
I'm sorry my life was short
And I couldn't stay longer
But you're the reason I hung around
You're the arms that made me stronger
And I loved it there,
In your sweet embrace
I loved to see your hope for me
Written on your face
We are forever a family
I will see you soon
I'll always be with you
And love you to the moon
Don't think I've been robbed of life
Or met a fate undue
For I'm only here with God
Just a waiting for you
So, smile and know that I'm ok
And in the care of another
Know that I did have a choice
And I picked you as my mother
Thank you for all the kisses
For rocking me safe to sleep
And for all the love and promises
That those rare mothers keep
I know it's hard to understand
That tables turn out of the blue
Because now I watch you sleep
Now I take care of you
I know you'll always hear my footsteps
Echoing through the halls
Always see the family pictures
That should hang on your walls
But, mommy you must know
I listen for your footsteps, too
And I have a billion hugs and stories
To one day share with you
