Get the hankies out
Is Heaven in the yellow pages,
Mummy went to Heaven, but i need her here today.
My tummy hurts and I feel down, I need her right away.
Operator can you tell me how to find her in this book?
Is Heaven in the yellow part, I don't know where to look.
I think my daddy needs her too, at night i hear him cry.
I hear him call her name sometimes, but i really don't know why.
Maybe if i call her she will hurry home to me.
Is Heaven really far away, is it across the sea?
She's been gone a long, long time, she needs to come home now.
Help me find the number please, is it listed under "Heaven"?
I can't read these big big words, i am only seven.
I'm sorry operator, i didn't mean to make you cry.
Is your tummy hurting too, or is it something in your eye?
If i call my church maybe they will know.
Mummy said if we need help that's where we should go.
I found the number to my church tacked upon the wall.
Thank you operator I'll give them a call.
Donna J Hoover.
May your days be filled with blessings,
Like the sun that lights the sky.
May you always have the courage
To spread your wings and fly.
