    As I sit in Heaven and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take you'll be taking one for me.
