To rise above the clouds
Were life begins and ends
Is the peacefulness of serenity
This you may not comprehend
The clouds they clash beneath
The thunder roars out loud
The lightning flashes through the soul
To spread your arms you are so proud
Reaching for the light
 That lingers just above
Pleading for forgiveness
The heart it fills with love
Judgment is but past reviled
As hard as it may be
To face the flaws of times gone by
Is to face god given humanity
Free will has been given
From somewere up above
This gift of choice is faith to know
You will rise upon wings of doves
