there is a thin line
between heaven and the earth
melding our two worlds

heaven holds our hopes
dreams reuniting loved ones
see God Face to face

earthly life of joy
sorrow and mending fences
trying to do right

some days I just fail
my tongue is sharp with venom
I seek Forgiveness

other times are bliss
I catch a glance, a glimmer
of heaven on earth

pray’r laughter music
good friends and those whom I love
signs of what’s to come

juicy rich foods
pure, choice wines on holy mount
O I long to be

striving to balance
offering myself to You
take me as I am

help me to seek You
to want what is right and good
bring me home O Lord
