Sending You To Heaven - Dedicated To: Dad - Poem by Sarah Selinger

I'm not ready for goodbye,
Nor so long, or see you later
not ready for this reality
I'm not ready for this life without you in it.

I'm not ready to do this,
I don't know if i can be strong

Tell me that this is a mistake,
the doctors made the wrong diagnosis
please remind me that your indistructive
just like i always believed, tell me this is just another nightmare
and ill wake up soon

I heard the news today dad, it seems my life is gonna change
i close my eyes and beging to pray,
tears stream down my face
its not a dream, and not a mistake
the doctors are right, i was wrong
youve destructed

dad i realized this isnt goodbye
because i know our family will see each other again
for now we must seperatee
you will go to a place where there is no pain and suffering
and we will be here waiting

I look at it this way
god lent us a gift, the gift was you
now he needs you back
so we must return you to him until its our time
well see you in heaven

i have one last request
dad when you get to heaven
send me a butterfly
with some sunshine
then ill know yyour safe
in heaven when i stand under your colors
and the sunshine on my face and the butterflys flying above me
until then ill be waiting
