Oh God This is Heaven
When we experience Happiness
We say Oh God this is Heaven
Many events make us feel this way
And these are my favourite seven.
Looking out at the river and sea
The cool breeze blowing on my face
The swaying palms completes the scene
This has to be a Heavenly place.
On a hot sweltering day we only need
Tender coconut water to drink
And eat its soft malai flesh
We're certainly on Heaven's brink.
Seeing a baby laugh and giggle
Just enjoying my silly prompt
A toddler's first steps or pitter patter
With this heavenly feeling we're swamped.
We were challenged and we worked hard
Many times we wanted to give up
And when we accomplished the results we desired
The trophy is Heaven's own Cup.
Our family sits down and we reminisce
Going down memory lane
Our family albums bring out much laughter
It's Heaven all over again.
We gift our family, friend or someone in need
Something they really wanted
Their gratuitous face radiates a joyous smile
Into Heaven's euphoria we're jaunted.
We go for a retreat and live simply
And hear many a reflective sermon
We sit meditating concentrated in prayer
And feel God's arms...we're in Heaven.
Our life on Earth has many ups and downs
We're embroiled worrying about hardships we're given
Let's learn to cherish the blessings we experience
And say Oh God this is Heaven.
