Violet M. Bennin

I am home in heaven, dear ones;

Oh so happy and so bright!

There is perfect joy and beauty,

In this everlasting light!

All the pain and grief is over,

Every restless tossing passed;

I am now at peace forever

Safely home in heaven at last

You must not grieve so sorely,

For I love you all dearly still,

Try to look beyond earth’s shadows,

Pray to trust our Father’s will.
