BEAUTIFUL

FAR ABOVE THE CLOUDS THAT ENVELOP THE SKY
SO MUCH HIGHER THAN A BIRD ON THE WING CAN FLY
BEYOND THE SIGHT OF ANY MORTAL MANíS EYE
THERE LIES A PLACE CALLED BEAUTIFUL

ITíS THE PROMISE OF PEACE THAT HAS BEEN FORETOLD
OF UNSPEAKABLE BEAUTY FOR ALL TO BEHOLD
WHERE GATES OF PEARL SIRE STREETS OF GOLD
THIS PRECIOUS PLACE, SO BEAUTIFUL

WHERE WAVES OF TRUTH KISS THE GLADDENED SHORE
WASHING CLEAN THE SANDS OF TIME, THEREFORE
GLEANING ALL THAT WAS YET SHALL BE NO MORE
THAT THOSE THEREIN, ARE MADE BEAUTIFUL

AND THE BANEFUL BROTHERS OF THE FEIGNING NIGHT
FEAR AND DARKNESS DEFEATED, HAVE TAKEN FLIGHT
BANISHED IN NAME OF THE LORDíS LIVING LIGHT
TOO NEVER LAY SEIGE UPON BEAUTIFUL

FOR BEHOLD, HERE WITHIN LIES THE ULTIMATE TREASURE
NOT OF SILVER OR GOLD OR ANY EARTHLY PLEASURE
BUT THE LOVE OF THE FATHER, A LOVE BEYOND MEASURE
THE HEART OF THE SOUL, BEAUTIFUL

This is a "beautiful" poem! I enjoyed it very much. The CAPS are a little distracting but very well done! Thanks for sharing. In Christ's Love, Julia
