Where Is Heaven

Where Is Heaven

A Poem by Pauline Downie

It’s all a perception.

I sat alone in my room, 
Screamed out to the dark, 
Asking God Where is heaven, 
I need a brand new start? 
This place I am living,
These times are so hard.
I can’t stand it any longer, 
And need a brand new start.

Drinking at the bar,
Some guy he said to me,
If it’s heaven you're after, 
You’ll find it in the trees. 
And once again I cried out, 
God whereabouts?
I keep on looking,
it's nowhere to be found.

This morning I woke up,
I had the strangest thought.
What if this place I’m living,
Is the Heaven I have sought?
I looked up to the trees,
To the thousands of green leaves, 
The sun was shining through, 
And I felt Heaven here with you.
