Poem – As I Sit In Heaven

Much of this is author unknown, an online friend who lost his brother a few years ago posted it, and I added and rearranged just a little to make this into a song, but much of it is intact, so I can’t take much credit for it, other than the putting of it to a tune.




As I sit in heaven

And watch and see

I know with every breath you take

You take one for me


Do you feel me, I’ve been here from the start

I’m sitting on your shoulder

I’m beating right along with your heart

Yes of course you’re gettin’ a little bit older

But you got my love inside you so we’re never apart


As I sit in heaven

And watch you everyday

I try to let you know with signs

I never went away

I hear you when you’re laughing

And watch you as you sleep

I even place my arms around you

To calm you as you weep

I see you wish the days away

Begging to have me home

So I try to send you signs

So you know you are not alone

Don’t feel guilty that you have

Life that was denied to me

Heaven is truly beautiful

Just you wait and see

So live your life, laugh again

Enjoy yourself, be free

Then I know with every breath you take

You’ll be taking one for me
