Poetic Praise: A Child’s Question

Posted: September 12, 2017 - 11:37pm

A child may someday ask you sir; How far from here is Heaven?

Think fast what will your answer be for someone who's 6 or 7

Will you say more than a billion miles somewhere in outer space?

The answer is not easy for we have not seen that place

Well I don't have the answer but let him stand this test

Just take his little hand in yours and place it on his chest

For him to ask this question there is a searching deep inside

And you should feel so honored that in you he will confide

I have not been to heaven nor seen those streets of gold

But my precious Lord has promised that those sights I will behold

So I think that I would tell him in this kind and simple way

Heaven, my little Christian friend, is just one heartbeat away
