Heaven's Gate - September 12, 2001

Heaven's Gate
(c) September 12, 2001

Touched my pen again
lightning burned my eyes
paper begged for comfort
fingers reached for rhyme

Thunder on the left
drumming on my right
my head needs to explode
but wants to stand and fight

Days of sparks and fire
mark my hours of pain
writing calms my spirit
angels on my page

Gifts of promised joy
waiting just beyond
watching for the light
guidance to my home

Patience growing sparse
life must be here soon
open up the door
lead me past my gloom

Wings of blessed spirits
a knowing face of fate
welcome heaven's child
back through heaven's gate
