As I watch heaven walk away
My eyes fill with tears,
My soul pleads me to follow
But my heart has long grown paranoid.

Clouds once again fill the sky,
Darkening the land before me,
Just light enough to allow me to watch heaven go
Yet dark enough to hide my tears

Once again I close my eyes
And dwell upon the image
That has burned into my soul

As my eyes close
Sunlight breaks through its blanket and
Tries to wake me from my daydream
Angels surround me
Silently pleading me to
Open my eyes

My heart hears their calls
But has long ago stopped trusting
The angels stop their calls
And return from where they came
Clouds cover the sun once more.
Heaven listens for me to call her back
but silence seals my fate.

I open my eyes once more,
I see heavenís silhouette in the distance
Her hair blowing in the wind,
Her hand grasping that of another
And my heart crawls back to it's cage
To find the pieces that have once again broken away...

Very strong! Terrific imagry. I'm sure it's not a fair statement, but it comes to mind a saying "Heaven is a woman named Hell."

r. baker33: thank you very much, even though it was my first, it still remains a reminder of my past inspirations. Thank you for your comments.

Andrew Scott: I agree wholeheartedly with you quote, it says a lot about love.
