More about Dawn Rose:
I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and am the mother of eleven children and the grandmother of sixteen. My husband and I are the adoptive parents of seven African-American children. I have an internet business, since 2007, where I make and sell look-a-like dolls of children all over the world. Writing poetry is a lifelong joy; lately I am finding pleasure in the whimsical characters that have come to life in my children's poetry. Three of these poems have been published as children's books so far. I play guitar by ear and love to sing, and although I am not a pianist, with the new computer programs available I can compose the music I feel in my heart. I hope my music will be a blessing to some of you. Things I love: Music, literature, laughing children, the words of Christ, soft horse muzzles, and floppy dog ears.
Song background:

It was so hard for me, a grown-up woman, to have my mother pass away unexpectedly. I remember wishing that I could just get a peek--- just a glimpse of where she was and what she was doing. I imagine that everything will be very much like it is in mortality--- just more beautiful, brighter, and filled with warmth and love. I have known children who have had a loved one die; how much harder it must be for them to understand. This song is an attempt at asking a child’s questions about where we go after we die. My hope is that whether it is the child or someone they love facing death, this little song might help to reassure them by imagining natural and pleasing activities.

Lyrics: IF I HAD A GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN
By Dawn Rose

If I had a glimpse of heaven, what would it be like?
Are there blue-green seas, snowy mountain peaks,
Stars that sparkle in the night?
I would run, I would jump, I would dance and glide;
I would soar like a kite---
If my eyes could see what is heavenly
And be in the Father’s light.

If I had a glimpse of Heaven, would everything be white?
Or would the one who makes rainbows
Have every color bright?
I’d eat strawberries, I would ride horses, and
I would paint birds in flight----
If my eyes could see what is Heavenly
And be in the Father’s light.

If I had a glimpse of Heaven, would the angels know my name?
Would they be like grandmas and grandpas
And be oh, so glad I came?
I know someday I will be in Heaven;
Then, it will feel warm and right,
When my eyes can see what is Heavenly
And be in the Father’s light.

If I had a glimpse of Heaven, I would play with the lions and lambs.
I’d hug Heavenly Father and Mother
And hear Jesus say, “Hear I Am.”
I know someday I will be in Heaven;
Then, it will feel warm and right,
When my eyes can see what is Heavenly
And be in the Father’s light.
