Christmas in Heaven

by Ellen Bailey

Mom and Dad are spending Christmas
in Heaven this year
They left me with fond memories
I cherish ever so dear

Their rewards on this earth
were few and far between
But their bountiful gifts up there
will rival a King

Some of my brothers and sisters
will be up there too
Along with some aunts and uncles
and a cousin or two

They made that Heavenly trip
and left me here alone
To ramble around a house
that is no longer a home

I miss the love and companionship
that was theirs and mine
I  miss them all
especially at Christmas time

Spending Christmas in Heaven
is where they will be
I guess God missed them too
and wanted their company
