My First Christmas in Heaven

From my family to yours, I wish for you a day of peace & joy filled memories of your precious child. Yes, Christmas will always be very different, but I truly believe that they are all celebrating amongst the angels..

I really don't remember who sent the following poem to me in 2009, that first holiday after Bobby died, but thank you if you ar reading htis...  I hope sharing it today, will help each and every one of you find some peace... This is another example of a favorite quote “from the mouth's of babes... “this is certainly one of those and I’m sure reflects the feelings of all our children if they could have spoken to us on their first Christmas in heaven... Cherie Houston

This poem was written by a 13 year old boy who died of a brain tumor that he had battled for four years. He died on December 14, 1997. He gave this to his mom before he died. His name was Ben.


I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below
With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow

The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away the tear
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear
But the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
For it is beyond description, to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart.
But I am not so far away, We really aren't apart.

So be happy for me, dear ones, You know I hold you dear.
And be glad I'm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I sent you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above.
I sent you each a memory of my undying love.

After all, love is a gift more precious than pure gold.
Was always most important in the stories Jesus told.

Please love and keep each other, my Father said to do.
I can't count the blessing or love he has for each of you.

So have a Merry Christmas and Wipe away that tear
Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year
