That day she looked over at the horizon

And suddenly a beautiful image popped up

A beauty at the end of the universe

Distracting her from the void

The feeling of emptiness inside


On that day

When  she looked up at the horizon

She was expecting to see his face

Surrounded by beautiful angels

Instead another image appeared before her eyes

Far away at the end of the earth

She wasn’t sure what it was


She looked away and looked up again

But it was still there, It was shining

Rays spreading out from heaven

Shining at her as if they carried a message


She would’ve liked to think that it was paradise

Their paradise, made especially for them

She would’ve liked to think that right there

At he end of the earth

Lay a place made especially for them

A place where he was waiting for her anxiously

Until it was her time to leave as well
