Flight through Heaven

 

Heaven’s rays beat gently down…

 

Following soft curving fields and narrow rivers

Through land and sea and over hill

From one end to the next, I follow

 

The Lord our saviour who gives us this sky

 

A little piece of heaven

Golden in the sunlight

Following, chasing

A simple tag with my teasing tail

 

And as I follow through the white wisps of wonder,

The gentle rays of Heaven beat down over my windswept wings

Chasing, teasing till once again I can follow up

 

Closer to the real heaven and out among the stars

When the heat ends and I fall…

                                           Ever

 

                                                        So

 

                                                                 Gently

 

Back to this Earth where I was born and now

Belong.

But one day, after the Coming, I will again fly

Forever, playing tag with the wind

And watching the rays of heaven on my windswept wings.
