Does Heaven have a phone number?

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,

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

Then 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.
