By name

You don't have to say God if you don't want.
Say higher power or Being or Spirit or Light.
I say God because it's the name I grew up with.
It's how I know I'm home
As I stand on the top of this mountain
In light that is the gold of the streets of heaven
Under a sky that is a sapphire jewel
Amid leaves that burn like rubies and topaz
With this warm apple in my hand,
With my daughter beside me
Telling me to look, look at this apple,
How big it is and so red it's purple.
I say thank you, God; thank you creator of the universe.
There isn't any other place to be

But God's country.
I say the name and know I'm home.
