Take me away
To where there is no pain, anguish and misery
From where there is no exaltation of my open wounds
To where the end is welcomed
I search my heart to find the promised place up there
That place that people pray and yearn to go to
But I can not find it
It is not there nor where I can touch it or feel it
Or is it and I just don’t see it?
I ache for total and complete respite.
Will it come soon?
I can only hope that the
Holy One comprehends the anguish caused by my affliction and
Comes to my rescue and takes me to his domain, up there, but
All I know of the where is His son’s answer:
“Heaven is within you.”
