"I Made It Home"
I just wanted to let you know that I made it home. Everything is so pretty here, so white, so fresh, so new. I wish you could close your eyes so you could see it to. Please try not to be sad for me. Try to understand, God is taking care of me... I'm in the shelter of His hands.
Here there is no sadness, no sorrow and no pain. Here there is no crying and I'll never hurt again. Here, it is so peaceful, when all the angels sing I really have to go for now...I've just got to try my wings, but I'll be the first face you see when you get here.
