You Paint Heaven Now

There is no end of you,

you are in between lives,

getting no nearer.

You stand

in the center

of a thousand mirrors,

and when the doors of heaven

creek open,

there is a silence after

silence after you…

I watch you measure

the splendor of stars on water,

but every time I think I can get closer,

I just get further.

Echoes and thunder,

questions and answers,

it’s all over,

over now

You are drenched

in sunlight and moon-sparks,

your imagination takes off

to landscapes undiscovered.

You paint Heaven now,

you paint Heaven now,

your body’s wandered

away from your soul,

but you are complete,

you are whole,

you paint Heaven now,

you paint Heaven now.
