Heaven on Earth
Sound of soft rain that falls in the night,
Dewdrops on roses in morning sunlight,
Wispy white clouds in afternoon skies,
Peaceful thoughts and contented sighs.
Fishing from the bank on a lazy summer day,
A winter night s starry majestic display,
Bluebird on the windowsill singing her sweet song,
Watching and wondering and stifling a yawn.
Sprouts in the garden growing tall in the sun,
Little dogs resting after romping and fun.
A good book, a quilt, and a glass of iced tea,
A porch swing and sunshine say, Happy! to me.
Dappled shade under leafy oak trees,
The smell of fresh-mown grass in the breeze,
The sight of a purple martin in flight,
Sitting stone-still in awe of the sight.
These are moments that refresh my soul,
Chase away troubles and again make me whole.
I thank you, Lord, for letting me see
A glimpse of heaven prepared just for me.
