I would like to share with you a beautiful song that is comforting to the soul and powerful enough to heal the grief-stricken.

My wife, Bobbie, brought this song to my attention one day in 1998. It was a year before Bobbie was diagnosed with what would later be terminal cancer. Sixteen months later, she passed away. I was torn to pieces.

Since then, this song has meant more to me than any other song I’ve heard. It is very special to my heart and soul, because Bobbie introduced it to me. It reflects all my emotion, when I think of her and the rest of my family and friends who have passed on.

The name of the song is, Holes in the Floor of Heaven. It was written by Billy Kirsch and Steve Wariner . It was sung by country singer, Steve Wariner . Here are the lyrics to this special song:

Holes in the Floor of Heaven

One day shy of eight years old
When Grandma passed away
I was a broken-hearted little boy
Blowing out that birthday cake
How I cried when the sky let go
With a cold and lonesome rain
Momma smiled, said don’t be sad child
Grandma’s watching you today

‘Cause there’s holes in the floor of Heaven
And her tears are pouring down
That’s how you know she’s watching
Wishing she could be here now
And sometimes if you’re lonely
Just remember she can see
There’s holes in the floor of Heaven
And she’s watching over you and me

Seasons come and seasons go
Nothing stays the same
I grew up, fell in love
Met a girl who took my name
Year by year we made a life in this sleepy little town
I thought we’d grow old together
Lord, I sure do miss her now

But there’s holes in the floor of Heaven
And her tears are pouring down
That’s how I know she’s watching
Wishing she could be here now
And sometimes when I’m lonely
I remember she can see
There’s holes in the floor of Heaven
And she’s watching over you and me

Well my little girl is 23
I walk her down the aisle
It’s a shame her mom can’t be here now
To see her lovely smile
They throw the rice, I catch her eye
As the rain starts coming down
She takes my hand says daddy don’t be sad
‘Cause I know mamma’s watching now

And there’s holes in the floor of Heaven
And her tears are pouring down
That’s how you know she’s watching
Wishing she could be here now
And sometimes when you’re lonely
Just remember she can see
There’s holes in the floor of Heaven
And she’s watching over you and me
.

END

I hope you found this song as comforting as it did me. I can’t help but cry, because my wife shared it with me. And after she passed away and went to Heaven , I felt her tears pouring down. That’s how I knew she’s watching, wishing she could be here now. And sometimes when I’m lonely, I remember she can see. I know there’s holes in the floor of Heaven . And she’s watching over me.
