Heaven


If there is a Place in which
One would Love to be
Is that Someplace where all is Filled
With Beautiful Imagery.

Happiness is Present
And so is Grace
In this Vast Loving Land
Of Mystery and Grace.

Whatever we Say
Whatever we Do
We must always Remember
That our Lives are not yet Through.

For we, Children of God
Do not Live in Vain
But once again, we Rise in Glory
And lessen our Pain.

These People, who do not
Take their Obligations seriously
They died in the Love of the Lord
And Ascend to the Promised Land
Thus fulfills His very Word.

This Eternal Palace
Which exists beyond Confronted Space
Somewhere here, somewhere there
Or could be almost Anywhere.

In this Land,
No more Problems are in Being.
Sin and Evil are turned to Dust
And Anger is no longer jeering.

Yet how do we earn ourselves
Into that Holy Place?
Do we have to be GOOD in Mind
Or in Face?

Friendly Mortals,
God has given us One Commandment:
To Love the Neighbour as Yourself
In every Event.

Obedience to the Lord
Is the most Apparent
For it makes your Body pure
And your Soul becomes a part
Of God's Hand.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
