Only Imagine



You can only imagine
the moment of your birth.
It must be miraculous coming down-to-earth.
You can only imagine
the moment of your truth.
It must be mind-expansion maturing as sleuth.
You can only imagine
the moment of your love.
It must be warm-heart-cockles soaring high above.
You can only imagine
the moment of your fame.
It must be hard-to-believe accepting acclaim.
You can only imagine
the moment of your grace.
It must be God's majesty shining through your face.
You can only imagine
the moment of your death.
It must be out-of-this-world taking the last breath.
