Crossing Over


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.
