By Susan Cleveland

On Christmas day in Heaven,
souls gather by a tree
to open gifts of love
sent by you and me. 

Beneath the glowing branches, 
lay wrapped presents very dear;
containing messages from loved ones
the Angels collected through the year.

Recorded in your voice, they'll listen 
to the heartfelt words you've said,
including the prayers offered 
when kneeled beside your bed.

On this holy day in Heaven,
celebrated somewhere up above;
the Angels give these gifts
to everyone you love.
