Holes in the Floor of Heaven

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.
