Maybe this has been posted, I don't know. But my heart has been broken into pieces since Saturday. Today I received this letter in the mail with a rose attached. Not sure how it got there but I felt I needed to share. What a tearful yet wonderful letter to read.
To my dearest family, I'd like to say,
But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from the bridge, where I dwell with God above.
There's no more tears of sadness here, just eternal love.
That day I had to leave you, when my life on earth was through.
God picked me up and hugged me, and He said, "I welcome you."
"It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone,
And as for your dearest family, they'll be here later on."
God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you - in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years.
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there will be no flowers, unless there is some rain.
I wish that I could tell you, all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are rocky roads ahead of you, and many hills to climb.
But together we can do it, by taking one day at a time.
When your walking down the street with me on your mind,
I'm walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go, from that body to be free,
Remember you're not going alone.
You're coming here with me.
I love you, Julie, xxxxx, xxxxx, and xxxxx,
