Is Heaven in the Yellow Pages?

  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.
