I wrote this (song/poem) for my sister.
She has found her heaven again, in the eyes of her new baby girl.
I met an angel last night
Sitting by my window
She knew my heart, her eyes were peace
She never said a word, she never had to
But gave me a message, bitter sweet;
“And when you find heaven baby
Make sure you never leave it, no never leave it, never leave its side.
And when you find your heaven baby
Never give it up, you don’t ever give it up, you never have to give it up.
You’ll know when you’ve found it baby
Yes you’ll know when you get it
And when you get your heaven baby,
Never give it up, you don’t have to give it up
Oh I say to you, and I tell you true,
Here on this walk;
Keep the stars in your eyes,
They’ll drown out the talk
Some never get their heaven
This time, maybe…
When soul true finds your heaven
Go wherever it takes you, baby.
You’ll know when your heart sees heaven girl,
You know how it feels
You’ll know when your soul feels heaven child
Yeah I say, no never leave.”
Her words never uttered
Soft as a smile
Shone like the moon
In a newborns’ eyes
How I know and knew I knew her
Is beyond the mind
Yes, I knew and know I know her
Beyond space and time
As I stare outside my window
Milky stars fill my eyes
“I’ll never give up my heaven
No I’ll never leave the heaven I find”
