    i reach for my piece
    of Heaven
    squeezing ‘til it surrounds me
    compensating for the absence
    of those i’ve loved and lost
    but remember well
    Lord knows i’m crying
    distressed because i see
    our sacred unity
    dying a slow death
    exhaling ragged breaths
    in the night
    bridges being burned
    stones being left unturned
    how can you turn your back to me
    failing to exalt the memory
    of those who strove to set us free
    but now the light has dawned
    and we must re-learn to rejoice
    and gather together in the name
    of that Heavenly Voice
    with the angels watching over me
    let me be the first to stand
    let me offer you my hand
    come and take a walk with me
    help me see what i need to see
    know that i see your pain
    know that if i could
    your hurt would end
    and your tears would dry
    won’t you let me try?
    for this day may be the end
    the Last of Lasts
    the exhaustion of Grace
    grab your piece of Heaven
    hold on and let it wrap
    you tight
    smile through your tears
    and fears
    push back doubt and
    inconsistency
    and make everyday a lasting
    memory
    for The Lord shall keep us
    in His Hand
    so long as we take that stand
    and let there be
    no more petty nitpicking differences
    between you and me
    allow me to caress your face
    and show you the love
    that you have shown me
    we must re-learn to rejoice
    in the name of that Heavenly Voice
    celebrate the life that we have
    before we have this life no more
    i can see you in my piece
    of Heaven
    as it’s wrapped tightly around me
    tell me that i’m not wrong
    tell me that i see
    the love that i should see…..
