I Touched Heaven

I touched heaven the other day,

While the little children outside shuffled their feet

I saw God write letters
While His angels stood guard

I stretched out my hand
And tightened my grip at the clouds

It could have been a dream
But I felt the sweat drip off my skin

So, I closed my eyes and let my fears go
And lunged ever closer to God’s own home

I trembled like I’d come down with something
As I drained my entire lifeline course

You should have seen the whole scene
When I frothed and fought.

My skin glistened like I’d rubbed it with diamonds
As I struggled to take back my breath


Overwhelmed and lifeless
I laid bare at God’s own feet

He was free to write my name in any book
I didn’t mind that this time He chose the former.

In the depth of that moment
I marvelled at my might

For once in my miserable life
I had not been locked out of heaven
I always wore insatiability in my loins
So I hoped I would be at God’s feet once more

Stretching and reaching out
Begging for God’s mercy yet again.
