Love Rules

The joys of earthly flesh, a smile
to wreath the maid of morn
an inner world to project out,
of God stuff we are formed.

	No need to cling like over-ripe fruit
	to heaven far above,
	We are made of silver stardust
	and we were made from love.

Look not to moon, or sun to see,
look deep with questing heart,
hug coming night with outstretched arms,
the dark’s another part.

	No need to cling like over-ripe fruit
	to heaven far above,
	We are made of silver stardust
	and we were made from love.

For gifted are we with all we need,
this is no metaphor,
we have a heaven here on earth,
yet still we ask for more.

	No need to cling like over-ripe fruit
	to heaven far above,
	We are made of silver stardust
	and we were made from love.

Be not the spoiled and sullen child
crying on, tired of his toys
mature, grow up, grow inward now
see life's heavenly joys!

*meant to be sung as a hymn

    If you are looking for heaven, it's here, it's here, it's here .... who said that? It's a nice one.

    Yes, we find everything right here - inside of us. God gives us heaven here on earth as He meant for us to enjoy it. We have put on other stuffs to weigh it down, to deflate the meaning, the enjoyment of it. If only we know... Great write, Debbie. Such a great song!

    This amazes me Debbie, it puts me in a righted frame of mind, you do something only you can do, sprinkle stardust on our lids before we sleep. Sweet dreams my dearest, may the angels sing of you tonight, as you sleep softly in respite. xxx

    Nicely done, Debbie. I love the phrase, "No need to cling like over-ripe fruit to heaven far above". That phrase says volumes to me - and I think it is very profound. I think people are so worried about what happens after life on earth that they fail to enjoy what is around them - I think that is part of what you may mean here. PS - soup mail returned
