The view from heaven is absolutely breathtaking; it surely beats the most wonderful things I’ve ever had the chance to see during my lifetime on earth.
In this brand new peaceful life I’ve been given I can watch everything from high above, be wherever I want to be—just one blink of an eye takes me to places I’ve never been.
I am invincible; though there’s some kind of loneliness to that invincibility of mine. I can get an eyeful of everything and everyone, I see my loved ones mourning for me, people I care about trying to carry on with their lives without me as I am no longer among them and even though I still accompany them in every minute of every day, I’m invisible to them—I can’t let them know I’m okay, I can’t tell them how much I miss them, I can’t do anything but stand beside like a shadow because I am not a part of that world anymore.
All I’ve got is the view from heaven to entertain me as I observe the daily battles my loved ones fight on their own, the dreams they pursue, the choices they make, the smiles that appear on their faces and the tears that stream down their cheeks; and I patiently wait for them to join me up here when their time comes just as mine came.
