Where is Heaven?
Close enough to touch,
or too far to reach.

Can I come and visit you,
would the journey be too long.
Is it all around us,
or far up above.

Are you cold and hungry,
I worry so much.
Do you sleep well at night,
are you sad and lonely.

Do you long to come home.
or are you happy and content.
Is Heaven a serene place,
is it filled with love and caring.

Are the hills green in Heaven,
do you have bright blue oceans,
Is your past family
caring for you there.

Is Heaven as beautiful as they say,
do Angels sing or are
you an Angel too.

Is Heaven nearer than we think.
do you remain the same,
or do you grow older each year.

Will I recognise you when I get there,
will you remember me.
Please meet me at the gate,
so I know I’m in the right place.

Does Heaven have night and day,
do you have time to play,
how hard do you work,
what do you do in Heaven.

I wish you could tell me,
what it is like.
How long you have to stay there
how long it will be for us
to get there.
