Rachel Loveday


Letter to heaven

I write to you, in heaven
I'm not sure where I should start
The tear stained words I send to you
are from my broken heart
You taught the world true kindness
and you were always there for me
you taught the world happiness
and that laughter was the key
My letter is far too short
I'm struggling, thats the truth
the world it seems so painful
and empty without you
I call upon your loved ones
and each person signs their name
for these many tearful people
the world won't feel the same
We seal the letter with a kiss
and send it on its way
then out of the blue, We hear your voice
here are the words you want to say
My loved ones, I have heard you
before your pen began to write
my soul is with you every day
and through the dark of night
Although I am in heaven
It doesn't mean that I am gone
Take a look around and see
my spirit still lives on
When the stars shine at night
my heart is what you see
and when you dream, gentle dreams
your heart is here with me
Don't worry if your heart feels hurt
with my help, the pain will ease
don't worry if you need to cry
i'll help to dry your tears
Please celebrate the life we shared
to your memories, I belong
and Talk about the good times
it makes my soul burn strong
If for now you don't believe
I'll still keep you safe from harm
until the day we meet again
and I take you in my arms

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
