"I'm Still Here" by John F. Connor: "Just because you cannot see me does not mean I am not there. Just because I am in heaven does not mean I do not care. I often see you crying, you often call my name, I want to hold you tight, I want to ease your pain. It's easy for me, for I know heaven's real. If you knew the truth, how much better would you feel? One day we will meet again, but only when the time is right. When you step out of the darkness, I will be standing in the light."
