I have walked upon this Earth
for eighty years and more.
My body is always in rebellion
and my moving parts are sore.
I long to bid the Earth adieu
for gravity pulls me down;
it’s necessary to use a scooter
when I go out on the town.
I have a license to drive a cycle
and one to fly an aero-plane,
but not one to drive a scooter
and I always get the blame.
Too many problems here on Earth,
hemmed in by a thing called time;
and when I look in the mirror
what I see makes no song or rhyme.
I read in chapter fourteen of John
that God has a prepared place for me,
and it is to that wonderful City above
I’ll be going home, where I shall ever be.
One of these days, I’ll be going Home
where gravity nor time are not there;
and when I arrive, I’ll have a new body
including a brand new head of hair!
