    'How Far Away Is Heaven'

    How far away is heaven, and will you see me once you're there?
    Is it just beyond the clouds with a golden stair?
    Will you look the same or as an angel with wings?
    Would I recognize you if I heard an angel sing?

    How far away is heaven and why must you go so soon?
    Is it somewhere over a rainbow, or just beyond the moon?
    Will you remember me then when your spirit soars so high?
    Would you recognize me if you heard your angel cry?

    How far away is heaven?
    I guess I'll never know.
    I'm sure too far to touch you, when it's time for you to go.
    How far away is heaven?
    A million miles from me, and the little girl who loves you,
    And who calls you Daddy.

    The Truth
    The Truth is an animal that?s
    with teeth that rip and shred
    the empty night ---
    it grabs the heart
    and shakes the very life out of it.

    There?s no fighting the animal
    that is truth,
    it?s so much stronger than the lie.

    Doesn't EVERYONE write poetry??? I do a webpage about poetry, and sometimes feature my own stuff there. Usually, though, it's showcasing my favorites. My favorite poet is Mary Oliver. She ties man to nature as no one else ever could -- if you haven't read any of her works, you might want to take a look.

    a wordsmith by profession
    words fire all our imagination
    a lost art no doubt
    only practised by those with clout
    perhaps there is still a glimmer of hope
    if men could learn the magic of wooing with words than just grope

    Greetings. I love poetry too. I have some of my poems published on You should try it too. You can have fun with some of the other contests on there. Haiku is fun to do. Ironic though, the best time to write is when you are lonely or a little sad or mad. Do I hear agreements on this?
    Would love to share poetry with people.
    Take care, and good health to everyone on here.
