    I can't say what inspired this; as my heart hurts too much right now to speak of such things. But I was painfully reminded of my own children, my nephew, and my friends' children that I felt strongly compelled to write this. Perhaps, it might give comfort to others today, or perhaps another day when they truly need to be shown they're not alone in their grief. Whether you're a child to a mother/father who has passed away, a sibling, a cousin, a friend, or you own children... I hope you find peace from the bottom of my heart. You are loved.

    If Heaven Had A Telephone

    If heaven had a telephone,
    I’d dial it every day
    To cry how much I miss you
    And wish you not so far away

    If heaven had a telephone,
    I’d drive the charges high
    Just to hear your voice again
    So there’d be no more goodbye.

    If heaven had a telephone,
    What a wonder that would be
    To talk to you for hours
    And to see what you could see

    If heaven had a telephone,
    I’d sing you lullabies
    I’d tell you pretty Christmas tales
    And all the times I feel your smile

    If heaven had a telephone,
    There would be no tears
    No sleepless nights without you
    Or lonely passing years

    If heaven had a telephone,
    I’d sing your birthday songs,
    And tell you of the things I’ve done,
    Since all the days that you’ve been gone.

    But heaven doesn’t have a telephone,
    So I’m still left down here to wait
    Until the day, with arms out wide,
    I run through heaven’s gate

    I’d demand to speak to Angels
    My plea for paradise,
    Would be to get a phone installed,
    To shine down heaven’s light.

    Think of all the phone calls!
    From child, to mom, with love,
    Yes, heaven needs a telephone,
    For those not yet above.

    I'm glad it was liked. :)

    I didn't know any other way to express the way I was hurting today, or how much I know others must be hurting...this was the only way I felt I could.
