The World is Heaven to me !

I have travelled a long way,

Don’t know how far I can go.

Still I am on the move,

Though my pace is now slow.


I try to speed up my pace

Lest I should come to a halt,

I have controlled my diet,

Given up sugar and salt.


Out of all my very dear friends,

Some are not there anymore.

While some are still fighting

But not as bravely as before.


Some are losing all their strength

And see no light for tomorrow,

They wish to depart now for good,

Accepted defeat with sorrow.


I know my turn will also come,

There is nothing that I can do.

Once you are born you have to go,

It is very clear and true.


But still I want to live long,

As I have so much yet to see.

I try to keep myself fit,

Hope God will be with me.


The world is truly beautiful,

Beautiful as it could be,

If heaven is most beautiful

The world is Heaven to me.

"Somewhere a voice calls in the depths of my heart

keep dreaming your dreams, don't ever let them part

The whispering voice, we never want to forget,

in each passing memory always there to guide you"
