James William Coates

August 8, 1949 ~ August 29, 2021 (age 72)



As I sit in heaven

And watch you everyday

I try to let you know with signs

I never went away.


I hear you when you’re laughing

And watch you as you sleep

I even place my arms around you

To calm you as you weep.


I see you wish the days away

Begging to have me home

So I try to send you signs

So you know you are not alone.


Don’t feel guilty that you have

Life that was denied to me

Heaven is truly beautiful

Just you wait and see.


Enjoy yourself, be free

Then I know with every breath you take

You’ll be taking one for me…SHARE
