‘Heaven’

… And in heaven we’ll meet everyone we loved.

Even the cats.

And we will see everything we wanted to see

but didn’t get around to in life.

Even God.

And there will also be flowers

never given to us by those

whom we so…

And they will also be there.

And we will have time for them all,

and they will have time for us,

because there’s plenty of time in heaven – all of eternity.

And no one will ever be jealous,

and no one will fall into depression,

and no one will take their own death

or banish themselves from heaven

claiming they’re fed up with playing the harp.

Because we all

Have nowhere

left

to go.

… And if anyone doesn’t like the harp,

they will be given a drum set.

Because Lord’s mercy knows no bounds.

Please help…
