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.
