For My Beating Drum

My heart, it is a beating drum and it dances to many a note. This sweet, song plays; by God, is recorded. Part of the heavenly band; a spiritual lilting light. In Gods light, my beating drum, slong with the band tings out its notes. A best-selling record, finite, in its play. A mortal song can play within God’s holy light. Celestial records, with golden drums, play the best notes in Heaven’s band. Every good band, with unending passion, plays the most dynamic notes; uplifting tones of beaming lights. Every drummer’s drum, Is heard and recorded. In Heaven’s studio, is recorded, every soul-band. when I play my drum; oh how I play vibrations of light; celestial crystal notes. Resounding, celestial notes Ring on the ethers and are recorded faster than the speed of light. The history of Heaven’s band; a soul’s music, can be played upon their mortal drum. Many notes dance in the celestial light. Soul’s celestial records, will eternally play. The happiest soul in the band; to the rhythm of life, will drum.
