My Heaven

Utopia, you ask?

Why to me it seems
Where kind words float on the backs of dreams
And smiles lap up laughing tears
Time no longer counts in years

Where angst and sorrow are not known
And silence is a resting zone
And no one wants but neither needs
No hidden secrets to deceive

An atmosphere completely filled
With my heart’s desired thrill
No war nor selfish meander sought
No suspicious evil thought

Can dare seep in as to defile
Once done, now evermore exiled
Upon this earth where mortal be
I can only long to see

My heaven where my promise lies
Beyond all galaxies and skies
Until then with His Spirit I do my best
To live at peace with all the rest

dVersepoetspub.com prompt today is utopia. What is your utopia?

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.
