IN MEMORY OF BRANDY CERRETA
(April 5, 1992 - January 22, 2003)
To my dearest
family, some things I'd like to say
But first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from the Rainbow Bridge. Here I
dwell with God above
Here there are no more tears of sadness; there is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight
Remember that I am with you every morning noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family they'll be here later on.
I need you badly you are part of my plan
There's so much we have to do, to help our mortal man."
God gave me a list of things that He wished for me to do
And foremost on the list was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night the days chores put to flight,
God and I are close to you in the middle of the night.
When you think of life on earth and all those loving years
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain
Remember there could be no flowers, unless there could be some rain
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth in over,
Now, more than ever before my life to you is closer.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too
That as you give the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain
Then you can say to God at night and "my day was not in vain."
And now I am contented that my life was worthwhile,
Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
Lend a hand to pick him up as on your way you go.
When you are walking down the street and you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go, from your body to be free,
Remember you are not going. You're coming here to me.
