Is the heaven we seek beyond,
Or a divine flame within us?
To reach out, grasping distant star
Is opening the heart to trust
In a divinely loving bond.
The seeds of immortality
In each individual soul
Lie dormant, to sprout at any hour,
As we dwarf or nurture their very goal.
If the quest be made lovingly,
Our eternal life will greet the dawn;
Awakening the asleep to see
Heaven’s all encompassing glory.
