"Christmas In Heaven" 

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 that 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 of 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
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I can't tell you of the splendor or the peace here in this place
Can you just imagine Christmas with our Savior face to face?

I'll ask him to lift your spirit as I tell you of your love
So, then pray for one another as you lift your eyes above.

Please let your hearts be joyful and let your spirit sing
For I am spending Christmas in heaven and I'm walking with the King.

This poem "Christmas In Heaven" written by Wanda Bencke has appeared on the internet in different forms. The above poem is the original. Here is what the author has to say about her original poem. The story behind the poem... Lysandra Kay Bencke was was my thirteen year old handicapped daughter. On Christmas day 1997, Lysandra had a seizure and was in a coma for five days before she died. During those five days, I wrote the poem "Christmas In Heaven". I sent it out in belated Christmas cards to friends and relatives that year. They also sent it on to other friends and relatives, thus, how the poem and the story behind it has been changed. I wanted people to know the story about 'Ben' is not true.

Christmas Lights in Heaven

At Christmas time we trim our tree
With gifts and candy canes
And go for joyful sleigh rides
Down sparkling snow filled lanes.

We fill our homes with tinsel
Our hearts with Christmas cheer
We're all a little nicer
At this lovely time of year.

Stores are filled with shoppers
Streets are trimmed in green
Carolers on each corner
Tis' quite a lovely scene.

But we cannot know the beauty
The splendor or the love
Of Christmas time in heaven
With our Savior up above.

The light that shines from Jesus
Stands out from all the rest
Of all the Christmas time displays
His is by far the best.

Like diamonds shining in the sun
You'll find His flaming light
Like a million candles burning
In the middle of the night.

The colors found in heaven
Have such a wondrous glow
And you'll find a world of beauty
Where the golden rivers flow.

There won't be gifts or mistletoe
Nor stately Christmas tree
But the throne of God will glisten
With the Blessed Trinity.
