The Beyond

a Poem by Raquel Swann dedicated to Heidi

 

Earth is sometimes desolate

Earth is sometimes filled with pain

Earth is sometimes lonely

There is place beyond the clouds where nothing of the sort matters

 

Earth is sometimes unkind

Earth is sometimes unwise

Earth is sometimes unforgiving

There is a place beyond the moon where you will find comfort

 

Earth is sometimes puzzling

Earth is sometimes explainable

Earth is sometimes baffling

There is a place beyond the stars where understanding lives forever

 

Way beyond the outer reaches of the galaxy

Transcending space and time

A place where you will find solace

A friendship like yours and mine
