"heaven on earth"

are there flowers in heaven
cause thats where i want to be
unable to be selfish
always easy to find me
never out of place
seeking preservation
and grace....
do angels have wings
cause mine are missing
like the words i forget
when i try to speak
from my heart
something is choking me
keeping me from saying
the same thought
that consumes me
at least once a day
so until i am set free
i can only whisper
but who will hear me
maybe i dont need wings
perhaps i can flee
with just a prayer
and a good deed
lord have mercy on me
