A Letter to Heaven
By: Eve Estelle
You were there for me forever,
You would lend your hand to help;
You were always there whenever,
You'd make the coldest hearts melt.
But your hourglass of time
Has finally run empty;
You suffer no longer,
But you've gone less than gently.
Problems befell you, that few men could take;
Your light shines in Heaven,
But a promise I'll make:
Your life will continue, if only through us,
We'll remember you always,
And miss you as much.
The life that you gave me, I still have to live;
But I can't wait to see you, to be with you again.
You guided and raised me, you loved and you gave me
The best father a child could have. Amen.
When you read this letter, please do remember,
That no matter what happens, love is forever.
Author's note: Dedicated to the best dad in the world, who recently passed after going through many crazy health issues. Miss you, Dad! <3
