Christmas in Heaven.

We've shared our hearts, full of holiday cheer
and shopped for presents for loved ones this year.
The hose is dressed up with garland and lights
that sparkle and shine through the holiday nights.

But even with all this joyful bliss
there's someone I lost that I terribly miss.
And as Christmas day draws near
I wish with all my heart he was here.

He's living his life way up past the stars
somewhere past Jupiter, Saturn and Mars.
He's spending his Christmas in Heaven, you see
and last night as I slept, a dream came to me.

He was standing by me happy and well,
he said to me "I have something to tell.....
Heaven's more wondrous than you would believe
its the greatest of gifts I could ever receive...

I'd like for you all to remember the good....
you know I'd be there if only I could,
so don't feel so bad that I'm not there.
There are so many memories you can all share....

As you gather together, I'm sure you will find
the gifts deep within you that I left behind,
each one is unique and wrapped brightly in love
they shine from your hearts as I shine from above.
