Heaven is in Manilatown

By Marlon Crump/PNN

Heaven's never hard to find
He found it the day he came
Though I knew you a short while
The legend of your strength, courage, and love stretches farther than the Nile
Heaven is now a Manila Town
The angels, elders, dearly departed, and even the birds of the air
wholeheartedly embrace you
Their arms were already open. awaiting the day that you would meet them
Heaven is now a Manila Town
The ethereal ray of light of your soul soaring through the sky can be seen by all of us...........even on the sunniest day
