Heaven Can Wait

002153-sb1I particularly like this one.

Heaven Can Wait

Too much to do,
Too much to see,
Too much to feel,
Too much to be.

I’ve tried things your way,
But now is the time,
To loosen the shackles,
& show you mine.

Too many horizons,
To set compass for,
Unchartered seas,
Beg to explore,
(Swim out passed the shallows,
& kick from the shore.)

Feel the wind at my back,
Salt on my tongue,
Chasing the sunrise,
‘Til this day is done.

Follow the porpoise,
As he leaps at the bows,
Dive in behind him,
& follow him down.
Down into blue silence –
Sing with grey whales,
No-one is there,
Our dreams to curtail.

Then back to the surface,
Lungs bursting to breathe,
Take off – follow the seagull,
& do as we please.

But feel free to join us,
As we swoop & we soar,
Back over the shallows,
& head in for shore.

Too much to do,
Too much to see,
Too much to feel,
Too much to be.
– Heaven can wait.

(Nothing to do with either this, or this which are both great in their own rights)
