Waiting in Heaven

Was your life your personal plane crash?
Seemed like it all went by in a flash
You never had time to reach your dream
It all seemed like some diabolical scheme,

Love was right there at the tip of your tongue
You were deaf to the song you’re angel sung
Those tears rolled on your cheeks and stung
Just like that miserable life to which you clung,

Yet I fear she won’t be waiting for me in heaven
A cat has nine lives but all I got is seven
Yes I fear she won’t be waiting for me in heaven
A cat has nine lives but all I got is seven,

All the wisdom came to me too late it seems
All the while I was too busy chasing dreams
Chasing pleasure chasing pride an empty ride
By the time I learned the wine had spilled and dried,

Yet I fear my love won’t be waiting for me in heaven
A cat has nine lives and all I got is seven
Yet I fear my love won’t be waiting for me in heaven
A cat has nine lives and all I got is seven,

An arrogant fool at the game of love
Found out soon just what pain was made of
For this is the legacy of your life
That plane crash that cuts like a knife,

Yet I fear my love won't be waiting for me in heaven
A cat has nine lives all I got is seven
Yet I fear my love won't be waiting for me in heaven
A cat has nine lives and I got is seven.

Your poetry is much more palatable than your political philosophy and world view, but that's the way of the world:
