      Is There a Heaven?

Is there a place of endless light,
Where darkness never falls;
Where sorrow dares not show its face,
And peace rules over all?
Is there a Heaven, up above?
The world may never know.
But hope and love can help to build
A Heaven, here below.

For, worry has no room to grow,
Where hope is in the heart;
And, love can drive away the pain,
To let the healing start.
With love and hope, the soul is free,
To soar beyond the blue;
To boldly dream a thousand dreams,
And make them all come true.

Life has its share of cold, dark hours;
But, also, warmth and light.
The sun shall always rise at dawn,
To chase away the night.
Do I believe in Heaven, then?
Why, yes - I truly do;
For, I believe this lovely place
Exists in me and you.

Troy... I agree wholeheartedly!!! Excellent piece! Tried to find a favorite stanza but all of them were too good to pick just one.

 Poetry~ Words falling on paper, painting a dream.

Troy~

What an inspirational piece, very beautiful and hopeful; and it flows like silk.  I really do love this.

Intellectually I know that Canada is no better than any other country. Emotionally I KNOW that Canada is the best country in the world!
