Poem -

Seventh Heaven

Seventh Heaven

When we finally reach seventh Heaven
The abode reserved for eternal bliss
Remind me again, my beloved friend
Why life decided to deny us this?

Softest hearts are taken advantage of 
As if compassion and empathy are weak
Depression has a way of chaining the mind
Until love cannot find courage to speak
 
Let us declare now that elusive peace
Defend the right to use our wings in flight
So we can circle around those down below 
To show God’s grace from a newer height

Let me rest, where blessings set sail to surge 
A solution to part from stormy seas
All of my strength bleeds in confused ebb and flow
Caught up in the sick need to please disease 

Yet your voice is the calming new season
Softer than expansion of angel dust
When the world bides with its broken rhythm
You are the comforting cure I can trust

Someday, I’ll stand enveloped in your embrace
Knowing my faithful place without question
Arranged by the stars in bright succession
Love’s gift through a kiss in seventh Heaven

Hi Marion.  Yes, this one is suppose to have a tone of being sad...a bit fed up with how the world tends to be unfair and speaks of a feeling of separation and being kept from love....Heaven being the hope to finally have peace and that perfect kind of love.  Thank you for reading and feeling the sentiments in it that I intended.  Love n Hugs, xo ;)

Wow T!  I don't know how to respond to your comments.  Well, thank you, first..lol.  I am adding this poem to my collection to publish next year.  You said some very supportive and encouraging words.  I want you to believe in me and my work...so thank you for that.  I am very sentimental over love and its journey to be what it is designed to be....created from the Heavens itself....seeking its moment to be all it can be in consummation.  Bless you for pinning this one...That means a lot.  Love, n Hugs n kisses, C xo

Hi Cheerie, 
Such a beautiful write, through a range of emotions, from sadness, and longing, to love and hope. Truly gorgeous. 
I'm like you, if you give up on love, you give up on everything, yet this world challenges you so hard in that area. It's perplexing, but never lose your romantic heart. 
The last tow stanzas are my favorite lines, not only because they're beautifully worded, but because they display that light that burns in your heart. 

Awesome writing, as always, Cheerie! 

Love and hugs, 

Matthew.

Hi Matthew.   Thank you!  If there is one thing I have learned so far in my life from experience is that life is not fair and the world can corrupt and manipulate what love is suppose to be.  To give up on what God created it to be would be wrong....It is that hope that lives in the spirit...from Heaven.  Thanks for understanding.  Bless you for your amazing show of support of my poetry.  Means so much.  Love n Hugs, xo ;)  Cheerie

You're welcome, Kiddo! 
Thanks for keeping me believing with your amazing, inspiring, gorgeous writing. Seems like life doesn't want you to reach that pinnacle of love sometimes, but maybe it does, but it first wants to show you how sad it can be without it, so we may forever exalt in it's beauty. 
Great write! 
L&H, 
Matthew.

That is a great analogy and and solid theory, Matthew.  It reminds me of something my Pastor at church said about how God can sometimes take something bad and use it for good...He said that we do not always understand at the time how our pain can become useful, but it does build endurance, patience, and appreciation for when love is finally revealed in its glory.  It is one of the reasons I believe that after the fall, God left us to shuffle through the good and bad, the pain and joy, to come to the realization that we need Him...and will appreciate the perfection of His plans for our lives when revealed.  Thanks for your enlightening comments. xo ;)

My Dear Cherie,

The World is quick to vilify
The tenderest of hearts
Two people that have found pure love
It tries to tear apart

.
Quite often, it is successful
Employing "Sins of Deadly Seven"
But a few escape its efforts
And arrive in "Seventh Heaven"

All my love,
Larry xxx
