    Rest your head, my weary traveler
    this earthly journey is at end.
    Leave behind the tears of loved ones,
    Lay your heavy burden down.
    Thoughts of you will give us comfort.
    You are in our hearts, you are not gone.
    And in our time we will join you.
    One last farewell, now journey on.

    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.
