If you read the story of “I might find some comfort here.” this is part 2. The story follows a tragic day of the loss of a loved one.
I have given a lot of thought to this subject. What would it be like to walk through the “pearly gates” or the veil that separates us from our loved ones? What would it be like to have that veil lifted and we could see what Heaven looked liked? We could see all of those that have gone before us. How incredibly awesome and fantastic would it be to see that the ones we loved were doing just fine!? What would it be like to walk up to them and hold them again and know that we will never have to leave their side again? Everything is perfect and everything is whole and good at that perfect moment.
That’s what this song is all about. That first look into the eyes of the one you lost. That first hug and the tears of joy. That feeling of remembering what they were like and the beauty that they brought to your life. There they are, standing in front of you and you are together again!
For my dear friend Rick, this song is also dedicated to you and to anyone that looks forward to that day. The title “This is Heaven” is an obvious play on words in the remembrance of that sweet little girl named “Heaven” who passed away.
I believe that those who are on the other side of this veil that separates us are very aware of us. I believe that they are just fine and doing well. They are without pain and suffering and they are surrounded by extended family that we didn’t even know we had.
We must “live on Faith” as my song says, until we don’t need faith any more, because we will be living on the “Knowledge” that life really does go on! That the plan of God “was right” and that we were never really that far from each other. Yes, the plan of God is to never have to let go of each other. What a comfort that brings to my soul.
I know this is true.
