Heaven

Does heaven have a phone number?
Mommy went to heaven,
but I need her here today.
My tummy hurts and I fell down;
I need her right away.

Operator, can you tell me
how to find her in this book?
Is heaven in the yellow part?
I don’t know where to look.

I think my daddy needs her too,
at night I hear him cry.
I hear him call her name sometimes,
but I really don’t know why.

Maybe if I call her,
she will hurry home to me.
Is heaven very far away?
Is it across the sea?

She’s been gone a long, long time-
she needs to come home now!
I really need to reach her.
I simply don’t know how.

Help me find 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.
Mommy 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.
