Heaven's Waiting Room



In our great little retirement community They're dropping like flies around me Need to break free, must get out this place It's Heaven's Waiting Room you see Don't matter if you're healthy as all get out The grim reaper knows where you live He's as anxious as hell to whisk you away And you really have just one life to give So ignore the guy that's waiting at the door Do all the things you've always wanted Relentlessly time keeps marching forward It's progress remains undaunted Keep ahead of the game, of that final day Laugh at that guy with the sickle Tell him you'll call when your good and ready This existence can be oh so fickle © Jack Ellison 2013

    Hi Jack, such a beautiful but sad piece. I hope that you can enjoy the nature and depart from that heaven's waiting room. Its a pity that I am so far, I would take a stroll with you in the park, life is so precious so enjoy it while you can.
