I'd like to have seen my mother's face,
when my daddy got to heaven.
I wish I could have seen her smile,
when she heard him call her name.
I know they talked about us kids,
and she showed him all the flowers.
I can almost hear my mother say,
"Honey, I'm so glad you came."
Maybe God lets Mom and Daddy
live near lots of little children,
So they can give them candy
and presents every day.
And I sure hope there are birds and squirrels
and little baby kittens.
That's all my Mom and Dad will need,
to pass eternity away.
