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.
