Longing for Eden


I’ve come to long for Eden or even a small corner in the garden

To experience the paradise God created for man, here on Earth

It’s the reason why I love the outdoors

Places where I experience nature

So deeply I can feel it in my soul

Where I sense an intimate closeness with Him

I go to parks, beaches, waterfronts

And I take it all in

Only to return to the city with the thought that

It was meant to be this way

So I look forward to a new heaven and a new Earth

Because if He could create such beauty before

I can only imagine what it’ll be like when He does it again

And I’ll be ready
