In Loving Memory of Robert N. Myers


A Letter From Heaven


When each day starts without me,

And I’m not there to see,

If the sun shall rise and find your

eyes, filled with tears for me.


I wish so that you wouldn’t cry,

the way you did today,

While considering the many things,

we didn’t get to say.


I know the love you hold for me,

is as much as I love you,

Every time you think of me,

I know you’ll miss me too.


When each day starts without me,

know that we’re not far apart,

for all the times you think of me,

I’ll be right there in your heart.
