I ascend above the highest clouds into heaven;
Where faith is a soaring eagle and ignorance is its descension;
Where life is everlasting and comforts are endless;
Where the state of our souls reflects our physical presence;
Where the content of character is the only essential credential;
Where love is perfectly paired like two turtle doves;
Unbound to the restrictions of finite mortal love;
No time or space, no kings or slaves,
Only eternal peace for all those He forgave.
But then I awake, blood still surging through my veins;
Sleeps beautiful ecstasy no longer in range;
The struggle continues, though my soul remains restless;
To return to this paradise on God’s personal guest list.
