My Heaven
Everybody has their own idea of heaven
What kind of paradise they’ll see
Pearly gates, streets of gold
No getting sick, or growin old
Sounds like a beautiful place to be
But as for me
My heaven is a wood frame house with a great big porch goin all the way around
Sittin on the swing listenin to the sound of the birds singin
My heaven is a warm summer day in the back yard
While the kids all play, flies and mosquitos stay away
While we’re eattin watermelon
That’s my heaven
You’re always gonna find a few non-believers
Those who stay lost in the dark
But I believe there is a place
Full of light ‘n love and grace
And I don’t believe that its all that far in my heart
My heaven is a cell phone ring while I’m at work
And the only thing that you have to say
Is you miss me and get home in a hurry
My heaven is the very worst day that I spent with you
When you were so mad but I still knew
Nobody would leave cause that don’t happen
In my heaven
My heaven is where I am now on the front porch of the wood frame house
Swingin with you just lookin around at all I’ve been given and this life I’m livin
Is my heaven
My heaven,
My heaven
I had to search for a song today that would show at least a little bit of what I feel for my husband. He is going in todya for surgery. He has ruptured a few discs in his back. At first I thought it was just one they were operating on, but I got the report and it is three. He is very scared because he has never had to be in a hospital before.
He is my strength, my rock. His life lately has been nothing but chaos and frustration. He has been in serious pain, often losing sensation in his legs. His dad almost died, had three heart attacks in two days. Now this. I will try and be his rock. It’s a strange place to be. But I find that I am stronger than I thought. I can be his source of strength.
