I had nine pounds of Heaven that I rocked to sleep at night,
and I often watched you sleeping long after turning out the light.
I'm sure the angels missed you although crazy as it sounds,
Heaven must have felt quite empty when they loaned me those nine pounds.

My heart is now that empty and I miss you day and night.
But as I hold onto your memories, I know now, Heaven is alright.
I'll always hold you in my heart, 'til once again I behold your face
in a Hevenly celebration when He calls me to that place.
