What Awaits, Beyond

Far flung place
Far flung place
to escape thundering storms
to escape thundering storms
Beyond stars that shine
Beyond stars that shine
beneath trees to shade
beneath trees to shade
a quiet refuge awaits us each.
a quiet refuge awaits us each.
In peace we shall all reside.
In peace we shall all reside.


Beyond the clamor, the glitz and glamor,

of streaking asteroids and all meteorites,

In a farthest reach of untroubled shores,

a quiet place awaits, there in our flights.


The undaunted delivery of the ideal spot,

will be given at last, and so right, this shot..

The unchallenged beauty there will be so fair,

none anywhere in the universe to compare.


The air will be cool amidst breezes that flow,

no more thunder with bad storms to bestow.

A warming sun watches, and there to remain,

never to burn with its rays, that bring us pain.


Blue oceans before us, under billowing clouds,

white sandy beaches provided for us to rest,

The swaying palms all giving welcoming shades,

Scents of wild flowers, let us know we are blessed.


This far flung wealth of such a marvelous escape,

Is there for us each, to receive it, a promised event,

Just have patience in this a mere twinkling in time,

For in trust and strong faith, we'll be heaven sent.

Solitude and calm awaits us there.
Solitude and calm awaits us there.

This puts things into perspective and makes me remember that life is not as hard when I have something to look forward to in the next.

Yes, I am ready to go, but I know when it is His will, as I am still here, so I know I am too glorify Him until that glorious day of His return or the day He calls me to my true home.

Very beautiful. Voted up ++++ and sharing

God bless you, Faith Reaper
