HEAVEN IV

Of course, I will fly, investigate

The premises up there.

It will take, at least, a million years,

I have time, no need to fear.

.

.

What everlasting means, you know,

Eternal in the skies!

You have seen one corner, seen it all,

No!  Will not believe your eyes!

.

.

What you will see then cannot see now!

Your eyes see not the half

Of what your eyes will see up there!

You will laugh with joy, you will laugh!

.

.

You will laugh!  Of course, no bounds to joy!

Look up now see the sky,

Sure, earth is huge!  Forget the earth

Look up!  You will wonder why—

.

.

You ever thought the earth was big

With huge planets everywhere!

And suns and moons, the sparkling orbs

There is nothing can compare…

.

.

Our vision is limited to rooms

In homes so large and grand

Up where they overlook the sea,

The view makes the command!

.

.

They crumble now, cannot replace

For everything has sunk.

Was sunk into the homes they built

And now just piles of junk!

.

.

In heaven there will be mansions,

Oh yes, “The heavens declare

The glory of God,” forever!

Nothing here can compare!

.

.

What will God do with those planets?

What suppose we will find?

Contained within the eternal,

The heavens!  For peace of mind.

.

.

Do you not sometimes wonder just

Why God places them there?

Of course, they shine!  So beautiful!

Our eyes see beauty fair!

.

.

There are no mansions anywhere

To match those up above!

Room for largest families there

Contributive to love.

.

.

Do not be looking in that church chair

Will not see me there no more!

For I will be waving from the portals

Of that happy, heavenly shore!

.
