Between Eternity

I think there is a thin veil,
Between eternity somehow
A shroud that hides that farther place
From where we're at right now

I think all things immortal
Lie within our frail grasp
Our prayers and dreams are answered
If we have the faith to ask…

I think that love can conquer
The callous and the proud
It chips away their armor
Til kindness is allowed…

I think that time is falling
Like the leaves fall from the bough
I think there is a thin veil
Between eternity and now…
