Two Kinds Of Heaven


I yearned to know where heaven is
Above the crimson sky
To know where harps so tender, sweet
Will greet us as we die

This longing deep within me
Delighted to know more
To hold the promise of a place
Believers have in store

Along this journey I have learned
Two heavens may exist
The heaven of each passing day
Each time that we are kissed

The moments that we cherish
The smiles behind our eyes
Each child we hold, each breath we take
Each patient, calm surmise

Perhaps one heaven's far away
While heaven here on earth
Is hope and prayer and promises
And joyful times since birth

It's what we make of every day
In filling up our glass
It's unrelenting dignity
And living life with class

It's holding hands with nature
And calling love our own
It's unrecanting loyalty
And never dying alone

It's pathways lined with peace and trust
And memories unfolding
It's magic coursing through our veins
When near the one we're holding

And when our heaven here must cease
All goodness we have shown
Will guide us to a heaven
Surpassing all we've known

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;
