Heaven's Just a Prayer Away
by Loretta Keener
12/24/2012 / Poetry
Heaven really isn't that far away,
for in this life I know I'll never stray.
Until then my daily chores and cares
are whispered away softly in a moments prayer.
Angels gather and hover 'round
to carry my burden homeward bound.
With a sigh, a cry and a tearful note,
the devil stands by with a glaring gloat.
He assumes I'm under his lock and key,
but my Father rejoices when He finds me on my knees.
I lift my head singing His praises all the day long,
surrounded by His presence soon all my cares are gone.
At last I arise free from care and woe,
rejoicing all the more as onward I go.
Yes, heaven really isn't so very far away,
I find it easily in prayer each and every day.
