God is painting the sky

Close To Heaven


Nothing seems closer to heaven

Than a beautiful sweet sunset

The touch of God’s sturdy hand

Seems as close as you can get


A pallet of subtle colors

Sometimes streak across the sky

Or brilliant vibrant shades

As you kiss the day goodbye


I think God is looking down

Smiling at what he’s created

And you know that He is proud

As His splendor is clearly stated


And the reflection in the water

Is like a look into our hearts

Are we peaceful and serene

Or would we like another start


So at the end of a busy day

Enjoy the priceless sunset

Because the evening brings us

As close to heaven as we can get!
