Heaven Not Far Away
Go to the thousand doors
Find door marked thou
(with an emerald)
Go through door to a million staircases
Find the one with exactly one hundred steps
(with a diamond)
Climb up to the billion elevators
Enter the one that speaks thy name
Ascend then wait perhaps a trillion years
For heaven to open its infinite arms
To your own musical note.
