A Thought of Heaven

from a spark of light a life unknown
from time and space motionless flown

born to breathe the air and so they spawn
where the goodness be, the brightness is shown

so closely I watch you glow from dusk till dawn
from cold breeze, a burning warmth has drawn

I feel your air so near though so far away
touching my skin as I take the pace along the way

upon my feet, dainty leaves and flowers sway
as they walk me through each step happily and gay

lips closed in shuttered tongue words I couldn’t say
only praises for all the beauty I come to sing and pray

a thought of heaven…could this place ever be
for my soul adorns everything that my eyes can see

I will bow down my head and fall on my bended knee
and with my agony and pride, I lift my spirit free

to join in the divine glory of your heavenly jubilee
my heart is yours… my soul and all that is me…
