I've Arrived

To my dearest family
some things I'd like to say
But first of all to let you know
 that I've arrived ok.
I'm writing this from heaven
where I watch over from above.
Where there are no tears or sadness
There is just eternal love.
 Please do not be unhappy
Just because I am out of sight
Remember that I am with you
Every morning, day and night.
I will be beside you
every day and week and year
And when you're sad I'm standing there
to wipe away the tears.
Don't be afraid to cry  
It does relieve the pain
Remember there would be no flowers
unless there was some rain.
There are rocky roads ahead of you
and many hill to climb
but together we can do it
taking one day at a time.
When you are walking down the street
and you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps
only half a step behind.
And when you feel that gentle breeze
or the wind upon your face
That's me giving you a great big hug
or just a soft embrace.
And when it's time for you to go
from that body to free
Remember you’re not going
you’re coming home to me.
