Heaven Is My Home

The Poetics prompt over at dVerse Poetry Pub today was to write about a fantasy world. Being ever the rebel, I decided to write about a real world that many think is mere fantasy.

Heaven Is My Home

Streets of gold
No sun, moon, or stars
because Jesus himself is
all the Light that’s needed

Some say it’s a fantasy
Pie in the sky when you die
but I know in my heart it’s real
Heaven is my home

Joy abounds
No pain, tears, or sin
because Jesus himself paid
the price and made all right

Some say it’s a fantasy
Pie in the sky when you die
but I know in my soul it’s real
Heaven is my home

God’s throne of
ruby and jasper, flashes
of lightening surround Jesus
the Lamb upon His throne

Some say it’s a fantasy
Pie in the sky when you die
but I know in my heart it’s real
Heaven is my home

Cherubim, seraphim
Living creatures like lions,
ox, and eagle covered in eyes
singing Holy, Holy, Holy

Some say it’s a fantasy
Pie in the sky when you die
but I know in my soul it’s real
Heaven is my home

And forever I will sing
Holy, Holy, Holy
to the Lamb who was slain
because Jesus is my King

  1. i like to think of heaven also as a place called now.. a place truly secured by Jesus and so many other ways of blood that freedom stands upon secure.. if we take it as the birthright of so many givers like Jesus.. that give us this way of heaven now..:)

    The best part is there are so many different versions of our idea of heaven going around and your poetry has given that gilded edge to all of them! Lovely!

  3. A lovely thought.. And a fantasy for some.. So good if it would be real.. Maybe we should try to bring some of the ideas of living to earth.

    I love the image of all God’s creatures praising Him forever. Holy, holy, holy … It does seem fantastical, but this is what we were all created to do.

  5. I like to think there is a place called Heaven – an afterlife completely free of hatred, ignorance and violence…
