Is the heaven we seek beyond,
   Or a divine flame within us?
   To reach out, grasping distant star
   Is opening the heart to trust
In a divinely loving bond.
   The seeds of immortality
      In each individual soul
      Lie dormant, to sprout at any hour,
      As we dwarf or nurture their very goal.
   If the quest be made lovingly,
Our eternal life will greet the dawn;
   Awakening the asleep to see
   Heaven’s all encompassing glory.
