I Dreamed Of Heaven

I Dreamed Of Heaven

Last night I dreamed of Heaven
And as I entered There
Past those Pearly Gates
I was in awe with a stare

I looked for my friends
But not one was to be found
I tried to call out
But, my mouth made not a sound

Right there sat Jesus
Sitting back on His throne
But without my friends
I was feeling so alone

I looked around the crowd
Only strangers did I find
Then everything got blurry
As the tears filled my eyes

Then St. Peter tapped my shoulder
He startled me in surprise
For I was crying for my friends
With tears running from my eyes

My tears turned to blood
As each touched the gold
Like the blood from Jesus
As the Bible stories have told

Then St. Peter said
"I know just how you feel,son
But you are in a better place!
You'll see when the day is done

Follow me,and I'll show you around
And introduce you to new friends too
You'll be just fine right here
Just so you know,Jesus has plans for you

Let me wipe away those tears
So you can see to walk around
Before you even know it
You'll have friends by leaps-and-bounds"

As we made our way through the crowd
Many of them greeted me with love
Though I had no old friends
What a dream I had of Heaven above
