What Is Waiting There To Be

There is toward the East
in Heaven, a lake,
where angels gather
to tell tales about those
whom they watch and care for.
With each story sung,
wings are spread
and they dance joyously about
in tribute, for whom they love.

In the North, a bell tolls
as a new festival begins
in celebration of the little ones,
new in nature, forever to be
cherished by love’s Founder.
Eyes now brightly clinging
to colours never seen before,
as lights move gently, floating,
to be touched and kept as gifts.

There is toward the West
in Heaven, gardens and fields
nestled amongst brooks
of deep blue water, springing
dreams of calming peace.
There, many dwell in a season
unending, pondering on delightful
marvels, new and pristine
in each turn of the way.

In the South, there are gates
adorned with names of wondrous
adventures, each giving entrance
to paths of untold splendor
to sojourn in thought and time.
After each journey, a memory
is left to be seen by others,
so as to enjoy what was felt
by the goodness experienced.

There is at the very center
in Heaven, a tree whose light
permeates to fill every eye
and heart, leaving a glow
never ceasing, lasting forever.
No fence or border surrounds it,
so all may eat of its plentiful fruit,
given freely out of pure
perfect, unconditional love.
