As the sun rises in the East and sets in the West, the moon and the stars shine so bright at night, I have gained my heavenly wings. I am only sleeping and resting in heavenly peace among those pretty stars that shine so bright at night. If you are missing me just look to the stars at night and think of me. There are many stars in those heavenly skies and God's angels are watching over us from those heavenly skies.
