The Mountains Aren't Near Enough to Heaven
|The mountains aren't near enough to
When all we know and dream about is here.
Each moment plays a melody so pure
No angel can beatify it more.
Though primed for death, our first response is fear.
Years of simple joys can last forever.
No eternity can long endure
