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.
