What I'll see in Heaven

What I’ll see in Heaven

When the fog just begins to clear

And my heart deadens

Lose touch in life that was once near 


I’d wake up spinning in his lawn,

Mint flavor, baker’s air

The dusk would turn to dawn 

And I would still be there  


I’d wake up where September cold casts,

Birthday candles keep warm,

When Nine had never felt so vast 

By the brink of the storm 


I’d wake up where the sun shines through

Family is of four 

And my dad is there to make due

I’d leave the table to get more 


What I’ll feel in Heaven

When the fog begins to clear

Is feeling like I belonged here.


The author's comments:

What I'll see in Heaven refers to spending time with my friends, birthdays before my life fell to bits, and how when I pass I'll live in the best parts of my life in heaven, or some otherworldly afterlife.
