Can the lights of Heaven sometimes wait?
The Northern Lights
E.C. Wesch

I see within the Northern Lights
A glorious Heavenly glow.
Where halos glide through the night
As I watch them from below.

Angels float among the stars
Twinkling there for me.
Whispering softly in my heart
Of things I can not see.

They speak of Heaven's beauty,
A world I can only guess
Where billowy, cotton clouds
Are where the Angels rest.

I long to float up in the sky
But I love this life I chose.
Where I sit and tend my garden,
And watch each miracle grow.

Each blossom is such perfection,
They'd be hard to leave behind.
The laughter of the children
They always ease my mind.

So I ask for Your forgiveness,
I know You'll understand.
They need my strength to guide them,
Instead of what You've planned.
