PARADISE REAL

The speed of wind blowing strong,

The speed of sound, of light!

The jet speed of a Thunderbird,

A dolphin’s freedom flight.

.

.

Our feet are slow comparing all

And slower still with age!

When sight begins to fade away

We are slow to turn a page.

.

.

The worm gets nowhere very fast

And other things appear

To travel slower than that worm,

Unchanged by thought or fear.

.

.

The sun, old sol, up in the sky,

What is up?  What is down?  Why?

Do not know a thing, some know it all,

Enough to make one cry!

.

.

Just why?  I ask as I look up

To see the sky so blue!

Can people make stuff to destroy

Who died and never knew?

.

.

The joy of making peace with God

The peace of knowing Him,

“Whom to know aright is life,”

Forever free from sin!

.

.

But how can some folk know so much

Yet never give a thought

To that which lies beyond the grave?

The life by Christ’s life bought!

.

.

Yes, we sin but know the power

Of cleansing through His blood!

That is why He died to give us life

And take us home above!

.

.

The breath of God eternal life,

We live as soon as death

Consumes this flesh to liberate

The Spirit with new breath!

.

.

The Breath of God, the Spirit Life,

Like, Angels we will be.

With Angels we will investigate

Live planets eternally!

.
