If Only...

 

Dear God Above:

I know you live in Heaven

So I'll send my letter there

I've tried to talk and pray to you

But I don't think you can hear

 

Dear God you have my Daddy

And we need him, Mom and I

I love him so and miss him

And sometimes Mommy cries

 

He's the only Dad I've got

And I need him here with me

But Mommy says that he's with you,

That's how it has to be

 

But God I love my Daddy

And my Mommy loves him, too

And you don't really need him

Up there in Heaven with you

 

But we sure need him here with us

Could you send him home to stay?

We'll take the best of care of him

So you can have him back someday

 

Please God send my Daddy home

For Mom and me to love

Or else let us come live with you

In Heaven up above

 

So we can be with Daddy

And you there in the sky

Then I won't have to miss him so

Or hear my Mommy cry.
