When I’ve made it through life on this earth And I’ve been called to my eternal home There isn’t a doubt I will have a wonder Awaiting me in the form of heaven divine When I see the splendor of my celestial home I know I will be speechless and so worshipful The sight of a heaven that holds the spirit of God Will be more alive than what I’ve ever hoped for The perfume of my heavenly home above Will be more powerful than any scent on earth I know that the smell alone will send me pleasure That can only be imagined while in this world When I taste the food that God bestows on me I will be sure to acknowledge how greatly He blesses With delicious nourishments that I might dream of If I could only have an imagination so very daring The sounds that come from around the throne Will be the voices and instruments of angel’s songs More musical than any sound I ever heard before There is no way to describe the beauty I’m in for When I touch the hand of the One I’ve always loved There isn’t a doubt that I will be thrilled beyond words I’ll kneel down before Him and praise Him for all He’s done Giving me salvation so that I might make my entrance above There in the heavenly realms will be every possible joy Amid the love that flows through the God of true love There will be more praise than my ears have ever heard And I know that, without a doubt, there will be pure tranquility When I’ve made it up to the home of God above I will lay down all the worries and stress, the grief That seems to follow me around in this world Up there, in the future, I will know all about real love October 5, 2019 I sense Tomorrow is the Future Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Sheri Fresonke Harper
