Gazing upward, my heart soars high,
Just like the dinosaurs in the sky.
White cotton mountains sailing to me,
What will imagination make of thee?
I smile and watch as they float by,
Never to fear, never to cry.
My childish eyes see all shadows fade.
Leaving me only a happy parade.
Something of age changes a heart,
Eyes no longer see skyís playful art.
My head yearns a pillow, no longer sweet grass.
Time is listless, making its pass.
Time for play is no more a part,
Of a day or hour, nor a minuteís embark.
What happened to joy? To hope? To love?
What happened to my skies above?
Life overtakes and stamina dies,
Along with the dinosaurs in the sky.
Childish eyes corrupted by pain.
What really, Adulthood, have I to gain?
No time to admire, too tired to try.
Itís all for naught, with only a sigh.
But somewhere down deep, I long for the smile,
That follows the dinosaurs once in a while.
On knees before God, I know I must pray.
My heart has grown weak, calloused and gray.
He lovingly made all beauty Ė all things,
Yet I cannot thank, I cannot sing.
Inevitable change, some would say,
No longer a child, forget about play.
It seems the white mountains are gone for good.
Iíd call them back, if only I could.
Iíd like to say I found all I had lost,
But Iím still working Ė still counting the cost.
God has granted a softness of heart,
As I search for Him and a brand new start.
Though childhood is gone and memories tossed,
Iíll yet gain back before winterís frost,
The laughter and joy, and soaring up high,
And Iíll watch for the dinosaurs in the sky.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
