    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.

    Pray that you and your family will be filled with the Peace that surpasses all understanding during this time.
    To fallen soldiers let us sing where no rockets fly nor bullets wing our broken brothers let us bring to the Mansions of the Lord. No more bleeding no more fight no prayers pleading through the night just Divine embrace eternal light to the Mansions of the Lord. Where no mothers cry and no children weep we will stand and guard though the angels sleep through the ages safely keep the Mansions of the Lord.
