My First Christmas in Heaven

I see the countless Christmas trees
around the world below

With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars,
reflecting on the snow

The sight is so spectacular,
please wipe away the tear

For I am spending Christmas
with Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs
that people hold so dear

But the sounds of music can't compare
with the Christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you,
the joy their voices bring,

For it is beyond description,
to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me,
I see the pain inside your heart

But I am not so far away,
We really aren't apart.

So be happy for me, dear ones,
You know I hold you dear.

And be glad I'm spending Christmas
with Jesus Christ this year.

I sent you each a special gift,
from my heavenly home above.

I sent you each a memory
of my undying love.

After all, love is a gift more
precious than pure gold.

It was always most important
in the stories Jesus told.

Please love and keep each other,
as my Father said to do.

For I can't count the blessing or
love he has for each of you.

So have a Merry Christmas
and wipe away that tear

Remember, I am spending Christmas
with Jesus Christ this year.

This poem was written by a 13 year old boy
who died of a brain tumor that he had
battled four years. He died on December 14, 1997. He gave this to his mom before he died. His name was Ben.

I received this July 1999, saved it in my
documents folder and don't
know why.  I lost my Ben 12/2000
