Is Heaven In Yellow Pages?

Got this one by mail. Had to post it....Read ahead....

Mommy went to Heaven,
but I need her here today.
My tummy hurts and I fell down.
I need her right away.

Operator, can you tell me
How to find her in this book?
Is heaven in the yellow part?
I don't know where to look.

I think my daddy needs her, too;
At night I hear him cry.
I hear him call her name sometimes,
but I really don't know why.

Someone hit her car, he says.
It fell in the river and sunk.
Someone hit her car,
and daddy calls him a drunk.

Why, operator?
Why did he drink and drive?
If he had not done it,
My mama would be alive.

Maybe if I call her,
she will hurry home to me.
Is Heaven very far away?
Is it across the sea?

She's been gone a long, long time.
She needs to come home now!
I really need to reach her,
but I simply don't know how.

Help me find the number, please.
Is it listed under "Heaven?"
I can't read these big, big words.
I am only seven.

I'm sorry, operator,
I didn't mean to make you cry,
Is your tummy hurting, too?
Or is there something in your eye?

Maybe I should call my church,
Maybe they will know.
Mommy said when we need help
that's where we should go.

I found the number to my church
and tacked it on the wall.
Thank you, operator,
I'll give them a call.
