By, Ruth Ann
To my dear family, some things I'd like to say.
I'm writing this from Heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
"It's good to have you back again, you were missed when you were gone.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do.
And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight,
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years,
But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain,
I wish that I could tell you all what God has planned,
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er,
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too:
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow or in pain;
And now I am contented...that my life was worthwhile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low;
When you're walking down the street and you've got me on your mind;
And when it's time for you to go...from that body to be free.
