I'm counting on heaven! ( poem )
When I was just a little girl,
my parents spoke of a place
that was out of this world.
It was far beyond the twinkling
over the moon and way past
They told me it was more beautiful
than any place I had seen,
Where you can ride on a cloud
that taste like ice cream.
You won’t need a bike or a car to get around,
nor use your feet to ever touch the ground.
You’ll have beautiful wings of gold and white,
your spirit soars as you take flight.
All the desires of your heart will finally come true,
no more sadness, fear or feeling blue.
Your family and friends that have traveled to this place,
will be the first to greet you with their warm embrace.
You’ll share stories of days long since past,
marveling at how it all went by so fast.
You are more happier here than you’ve ever been,
in this land your real life truly begins.
All of life's questions will be made perfectly clear,
all the good that you do will bring you there.
To pet a lion and brush his mane,
All of the animals are perfectly tame.
To swim with the dolphins off the coast of the Key’s,
frolic with the monkey’s and dance in the trees.
You can take trips to places you had longed to see,
watching the sunsets in Africa is where I will be.
Soaring over mountains, lakes and streams,
fulfilling all of my lifelong dreams.
I’m counting on this heavenly place in the sky,
so, please don’t be sad when I say my last goodbye!
I'm happy here soaring and free;
Just look past the moon that's where you'll find me!
