The angel said my place was ready, in Heaven far above, and that I’d have to leave behind all that I dearly loved. But when I walked through Heaven’s Gate, I felt so much at home, for God looked down, smiled at the me and said “Welcome Home.”
So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart, for every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart.
