Little Bits Of Heaven - Poem by Jim Yerman

Many religions talk about heaven…
or of a similar type of place…
where their God or Gods reside…
that transcend both time and space.

They believe they know where they will go
when death replaces birth
but in the meantime isn't it nice to know
little bits of heaven await us here on Earth?

For I believe I have been blessed
since the moment of my birth
with little bits of heaven…
from my place…right here on Earth.

I feel it when I watch a bird,
a butterfly or a honeybee…
When I'm surrounded by nature's beauty,
or immersed in friends and family.

I feel heaven when I feel love…
when I walk along the beach…
while watching the sunset color the clouds…
when I eat that perfect peach.

In a line from a book, a special song,
a candlelit dinner for two
Hearing a child call me Dad or PopPop…
In a cloudless sky of blue.

I could go on except Heaven is personal…
it's different for you and me…
this is just a reminder how we've been blessed
to experience such symmetry?

For not only are we blessed with little bits of heaven...
as each one of us defines them…
but we're also blessed with the aptitude
and ability to find them.

For not only are we blessed with little bits of heaven
as each one of us defines them…
but we're also blessed with the aptitude
and ability to find them.
