Mommy went to Heaven,
but I need her here today,

My tummy hurts and I fell down,
I need her right away.

Operator can you tell me how to find her in this book?
Is heaven in the yellow part,
I don't know where to look.
I think my daddy needs her too,

at night I hear him cry.
I hear him call her name sometimes,
but I really don't know why.
Maybe if I call her,

she will hurry home to me.
Is Heaven very far away,
is it across the sea?

She's been gone a long,
long time she needs to come home now!
I really need to reach her,

but I simply don't know how.
Help me find the number please,
is it listed under "Heaven"?

I can't read these big big words, I am only seven.
I'm sorry operator,
I didn't mean to make you cry,

Is your tummy hurting too,
or is there something in your eye?
If I call my church maybe they will know.

Mommy said when we need help that's where we should go.
I found the number to my church tacked up on the wall.
Thank you operator, I'll give them a call.
