Oh, please don't feel guilty,
It was just my time to go.
I see you are still feeling sad,
And the tears just seem to flow
We all come to earth for our lifetime,
And for some it's not many years
I don't want you to keep crying
You are shedding so many tears
I haven't really left you
Even though it may seem so.
I have just gone to my heavenly home,
And I'm closer to you than you know
Just believe that when you say
my name, I'm standing next to you,
I know you long to see me,
But there's nothing I can do.
But I'll still send you messages
And hope you understand,
That when your time comes to
"cross over," I'll be there
to take your hand.
The family would like to express their deepest appreciation and gratitude to all who have expressed their love during our time of bereavement. Your kindness is deeply appreciated. May God bless you and His love be yours to share.To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Calvin Jackson, please visit Tribute Store
