Shadows Of Heaven In My Path

image

 

 I look around this realm
Searching for hope
The certainty that change is coming
I look in the faces close by
They echoed my own disdain
Each wearing that wistful look
That desperate one that says
‘We know there’s more to us
This reality feels like a dream
From which we can’t awake’.

We cry out into the open air
Hoping the wind will carry our voices
Across the oceans and the hills
Though acrid deserts and thick forests
To the place where it all began
We pray without knowing we did
We appeal to one we cannot see
Not even sure if anyone can hear
We cuss out loud when we get nothing back.

We never ever think to look up
Oh no, that’s just a fairy tale
We are dealing with real life
We have no time for abstract things
Like a big grey haired man up in the sky
But when we have no where else to look
We raise our faces to the skies
We close our eyes and pretend we are 2
We make a wish and say it’s on a star

But It is a prayer from the heart
It’s filled with innocence unspoiled by life
Built on hope that there’s someone up there
Who can hear us and grant our wish
We plead with heaven while on our earth
We state our case to the rainmaker in the sky
We cross our fingers and hope not to die

We are jostled back to reality
We open our eyes
And everything looks the same
But deep inside we feel a change
Hope is alive, we feel reborn
To stand again, where we once fell
Everyone prays when they are up against the tide
Perhaps not to the man in the sky
But to the one we hope can hear our plea
From deep inside where we can’t lie

And maybe one day, we will believe
That love made us and love is God
And when all else fades away
We find ourselves back where we started
Standing naked in our childlike faith
Appealing to a love greater than us
Begging not to be denied
Our requests genuine and bare
Are answered by the one who loved us
Way before we existed in this realm
We finally know that we are known
Beyond this reality which is but a dream
God is real. He heard that prayer.
And now we believe
Heaven does cast shadows in our paths.
