My Letter to Heaven
I would like to send a letter to heaven
and address it to the one I love.
My child has left this world,
to be with the Lord above.
I would tell her that I love her,
and that I miss her loving touch.
I would say we're lost without her
and we miss her - - oh so much.
I would ask if she could visit,
if we promised not to cry.
Maybe one more time to see her
We forgot to say "Good-bye."
We will try to control our emotions
we truly feel we could.
So please - - we need a visit.
We promise we'll be good.
It is so hard, we miss her.
Oh Lord, this feeling is the worst.
We know you gave her to us,
yes, we know you had her first.
But you called her prematurely,
I'm sorry I question your will.
I know you have your reasons
but Lord - - I miss her still.
If you'd only make an exception
please consider what we plea.
It is so hard accepting that our daughter
- - We will never see.
Oh baby I write you this letter
with all the love there is to be had.
Because it's just not me who's hurting
there's your brother and your dad.
We need so much to see you,
then we'll try to let you rest.
But if not in this world, baby,
then we'll see you in the next.
So I'm sending a letter to heaven,
and pray you hear my plea.
But if the answer is not what I'm asking --
Lord come and rescue me!
