The surroundings shroud my mind
with a blanket of fog speaking to the waters
I tread on with whispers in the morning
so deep inside a river of sorrow.
I drink in tears from the rain,
letting their waters fall over me
and behold my spirit with the Almighty
lifting me up through the clouds and touch
the rays of sunshine.
Evergreen dancing in this pure light
allows me to be magnetized by the grace
Your colors radiate my heart,
and build up its glowing embers.
I see in the distance the Gates of Heaven
opening their heart unto me.
I walk through them with anticipation.
I come to the high pedestal where there is
a fire burning.
Gazing into the flames, I see the face of God.
