Heaven and Earth
by Karen McCombs
      When the warmth of the sun touches my face, 
      I see your smile and feel your embrace. 
      I hear the whisper of love in the wind 
      And I know that you are close to me again. 
      The rain speaks of tears and the thunder of pain, 
      But soon the sun comes the earth to reclaim. 
      As the days come and go and the world moves on, 
      I know you're still here, you'll never be gone. 
      On the night the Angel came and took your hand, 
      We cried as you left for an unknown land. 
      But Heaven rejoiced as you came into sight, 
      For your soul was a diamond, shining so bright!
