My heart is
In the nowhere zone
Between the Earth
And the heavens.

Oh Lord!
What am I doing
Here on Earth
When You are
Up above
Seven heavens?

Trapped within
My earthly body,
My soul is fidgeting.
To meet You.

This world,
This life on Earth
Has nothing
To comfort me.

Yet I cannot
Leave it
To seek You
Until it is time
For me to go.

And so
I am stranded
In the nowhere place
Between the Earth
And the heavens.

I have
Nowhere to stay.
And nowhere to go.
