I saw a light in the midst of the ocean,
God Lord! It was so beautiful,
A pearl, a gem, anything expensive it could be,
I loved it, I wanted it.
Its beauty was worth a thousand diamonds,
I named it pretzel but wondered what it was,
My friends knew not what i had seen,
I got into the water, I heard them shout.
I swam, the waves kept pulling me back,
A shark I saw, huge it was, teeth razor-sharp,
Towards me, moved the shark,
I kept swimming.
I could hear my friends no more.
Closer I got to the light,
The shark still behind me,
My legs wanted to stop and numb was the feeling in my body,
My heart desired to keep moving.
Now, I could see what it was,
My eyes just stared at its beauty,
A beauty so profound,
A beauty so magical,
A beauty so unforgettable.
I took it and held it tight in my hand,
Behind me, the shark was gone.
I moved swiftly towards the water,
Gone were the waves!
Gone were the voices of discouragement!
Now, I got out of the water,
I looked around me and then, i saw it all!
A place so beautiful,
A place words could describe not.
I looked back and like magic, gone was the water!
Ahead was a gate where two men stood,
Wings they had,
White they wore,
Swords they held,
The gates they opened,
The light had led me to heaven!
