From Heaven With Love

This message comes from heaven above
It’s written to you with all my love
The Lord called me home, but your grief must change
‘Cause I no longer suffer sickness and pain 

Listen to my words and be of cheer
As I tell you what’s happened since I arrived here
I was immediately ushered before the Throne of Grace
Christ held my hand and touched my face 

“I died for you,” he said, and faith you did keep
I fell to my knees and kissed his feet
As he whispered – you’re home where believers belong
All heaven rejoiced in beautiful song 

His eyes are like fire in a diamond stone
A rainbow like an emerald surrounds his throne
Water runs from it, crystal clear never cold
The streets are formed with the purest gold 

Then Jesus led me to the place He prepared
No building on earth can be compared
It is not built of wood, clay or stone
His light and His love fill my beautiful home 

If you could only see me and all these things 
And listen as I do when the angels sing
You would stop grieving and go on with your life
‘Cause I’m with my Savior – Jesus Christ

This poem was originally written in December 1995, for my Dad, George W. Craig, Sr. He was very depressed after my Mothers passing to glory – on August 15, 1995. My Mother, Edna Jeanette Hickman Craig, seemed to speak through me with this message meant for my dad, and I simply wrote. It only took about an hour and thirty minutes to write. This poem is based from the Bible, the Book of Revelation. Anyone wishing to read it at funerals will always be welcome to do so, just acknowledge me as the author. Thank you. C. S. Craig.
