Cynthia Repasy: Mirrors

Does heaven have a phone number?
Daddy went to heaven, but I need him here today.

My tummy hurts and I fell down; I need him right away.

Operator, can you tell me how to find him in this book?

Is heaven in the yellow part?  I don't know where to look.
I think my mommy needs him too, at night I hear her cry.

I hear her call his name sometimes, but I really don't know why.
Maybe if I call him, he will hurry home to me.

Is heaven very far away?  Is it across the sea?
He's been gone a long, long time-
He needs to come home now!

I really need to reach him, I simply don't know how.
Help me fine the number, please.  Is it listed under "heaven?"

I can't read these big, big words; I am only seven.
I'm sorry, operator, I didn't mean to make you cry.

Is your tummy hurting too, or is there something in your eye?
If I call my church maybe they will know.

Daddy said when we need help that's where we should go.
I found the number to my church tacked up on the wall.

Thank you, operator
I'll give them a call.

I have lost many friends in my life time.  Coping with the loss is never easy, whether it's a family member, a friend, or a pet.

  1. I love this good idea. I think this is a realy cool photo.

  2. This is a great idea! Just one thing is spell check "loved one" at the end.

  3. Thank you very much Devin and Mariah! I fixed the spelling mistake...thanks for letting me know about it.
