NEW HOME

My new home, out on the sun porch.

Tell me, what can compare?

Beautiful all around and shaded!

Give up?  Like heaven there!

.

.

Close to, like, heaven should say

Any closer I would be

There already, instead of way off

Out in the wild country.

.

.

Should have said our new family home

Daughter and family share!

Contrary to what any may think

It will be peaceful there!

.

.

Daughter and husband, granddaughter, too.

Bedrooms, we use all four!

Shaded out there, like, call of the wild,

But tame!  No snakes out the door!

.

.

My room?  Delightful!  Grassy green the floor,

Walls light blue all around.

Peaceful in there and will soon warm up!

No crickets, no cricket sound.

.

.

Could be God is getting me used to heaven.

Accustomed, do you suppose?

But nothing could be as grand as that!

With immortality clothed!

.

.

But nothing could be that fair I contend,

“I go to prepare a place.

For you and will come again to receive.”

Nothing can heaven deface!

.

.

Yes, “Delight yourself in The Lord and He

Will give you the desires of your heart.”

Set your affections on things above,

And that is a very good start!

.

.

Heaven if fairer and so much brighter!

No need, I think, to pretend!

His Spirit bears witness with mine!

I know with a shout He will descend!

.
