To heaven I look for peace
And I pray to ease my pain
My edgy loneliness

The weight of my grief will lessen, my love
With your promise of eternity together
Touch me while I sleep
Take me to your heavenly bed
If only for one night, one dream
Let me awaken with your arms still wrapped around me.

To heaven I look for peace
To heaven I reach for you
