I had this beautiful poem sent to me. I cry every time I read it. I want everyone else to enjoy it & I hope it helps a little bit as it did me.
My First Christmas in Heaven
I see the countless Christmas Trees around the world below,
With tiny lights, like heavenÂs stars, reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular; please wipe away that tear,
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
But the sounds of music canÂt compare with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
For it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me; I see the pain inside your heart,
But I am not so far away, we really arenÂt apart.
So be happy for me dear one, you know I hold you dear,
And be glad IÂm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I send to you a special gift from my heavenly home above,
I send to you a memory of my underlying love.
After all, "love" is the gift more precious than pure gold,
It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other, as the Father said to do,
For I canÂt count the blessings, or the love he has for you.
So have a Merry Christmas, and wipe away that tear,
Remember, IÂm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
