Beautiful like golden shores and milky banks and a crystal sea,
beautiful like her hair goes when the wind blows on a summer’s breeze.
I've lived a life of pain so I can appreciate such things as these,
a memory remains, the understanding of how much more could be.
The clouds they serve as walls,
for all is safe inside this airy place,
With food and drink and finer things,
for all of those whom feel this grace.
I've loved this world and shared it to the best of my understanding,
and even got to feel the love of a woman with an angel’s face.
Though your life will not turn out just quite the way you planned it,
and the sands of time will wipe away your life’s footprint without a trace.
You must keep faith,
and strive to love with all that you possibly can.
Then smile more and pass it on,
until we reach the promise lands.
