Heaven Bound

Heaven Bound
Heaven Bound

It's not the big important things

That make this world go round.

It's the little 'insignificants"

That take us heaven bound.

The way we say, "Good Morning"

Or the way we share a smile,

Or sometimes just to sacrifice

And listen for a while.

To feel another's sorrow

Or to share another's joy,

Is so simple, yet so meaningful

A service to employ.

A pat upon the shoulder

To give credit when its due,

Could make the day of someone

Who would otherwise be blue.

To be grateful, not demanding,

To seek the good instead of bad,

To say the words "I love you"

While the time is to be had...

To share a bit of happiness

Where perhaps none can be found

Is the real big significant

That takes us heaven bound.
